Swing has never had a sterling reputation. It is (correctly) perceived as complicated, over-designed and generally difficult to work with. Seesaw is a user interface toolkit built in Clojure that makes UI development fun again. It unifies many abstractions that are scattered or non-existant in the Swing API, for example: event handling, selection, semantic "value", binding, and more. In this talk, we will learn how to combine these capabilities to rapidly construct desktop applications in Clojure. Put away proxy, reify, doto and friends. You won't need them here.
