Building User Interfaces in Clojure for Fun and ... well, for fun.

A session at Great Lakes Functional Programming Conference

Seesaw is a user interface toolkit built on the venerable Swing
library. It's truly enjoyable to work with and it's all thanks to
Clojure. Clojure gives developers the tools to take a washed-up old
API like Swing and breathe new life into it. Upshot is a Clojure rich
internet application toolkit built on the up-and-coming JavaFX 2.0
API. Clojure gives developers the power to take a modern,
well-designed API and make it even more expressive, dynamic, and
interactive. This is a talk about building user interfaces,
abstractions, and having fun, all from the comfort of Clojure.
