We have seen a Cambrian explosion of languages that compile to JS in recent years. Of these, CoffeeScript and TypeScript are the most popular since they are evolutionary.
ClojureScript is more ambitious and revolutionary than these languages with its emphasis on functional programming, however it may feel foreign and difficult to a lot of programmers due to its Lisp roots.
This talk will hopefully help you overcome that fear and start enjoying programming in ClojureScript. I will give an overview of the language and its ecosystem, and showcase some of the most popular libraries like core.async (Go style concurrency model as a solution to problems requiring async coordination) and Om (a ClojureScript library that uses Facebook’s wonderful React library).
