You are a Clojure newbie who has a firm grasp of the sequence abstraction and have been mapping and reducing like a pro, enthusiastically solving project euler and 4clojure problems. Life is good and producing a fibonacci sequence has never been so much fun. However, the time has come to produce a web app but you are not sure where to begin!

This tutorial will provide an introduction to web development in Clojure for beginners, using a monitoring dashboard as the vehicle.
There will be a break for lunch part-way through the session.

Over the last year Joseph Wilk has been introducing Clojure into SoundCloud.
