Ep 070: Socket Circus
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: “Websockets.” We talk about spontaneously sending data from the server to the client to address our users’ insecurities.
- “Classic engineering solution, let’s just bend a couple of assumptions.”
- “Reloading the web page is 1995-style integration.”
- “Poll every tenth of a second? Yeah, that’ll work till we need to scale past 4 users.”
- “In every engineering choice, there is always a tradeoff.”
