Ep 064: Put Ring on It
Each week, we discuss a different topic about Clojure and functional programming.
If you have a question or topic you’d like us to discuss, tweet @clojuredesign, send an email to email@example.com, or join the
#clojuredesign-podcast channel on the Clojurians Slack.
This week, the topic is: “Ring, the foundation of Clojure HTTP” We focus on the bedrock abstraction for all Clojure web applications and marvel at its simplicity.
- “Somebody wants to make a web app, and suddenly they’re up against all these layers.”
- “The law of leaky abstractions is good to remember.”
- “HTTP is just a function call over the Internet.”
- “Your function gets a map, and it returns a map.”
