This post has shameless advertising about Siili and Clojure.
As we all know there are a lot of things going on all the time in our field. I am now sharing some thoughts that were first brought to public in ClojuTRE conference in September. If you weren’t there, don’t worry. Youtube can get you up to date about the speeches. In ClojuTRE we published that Siili is starting a new kind of business solution around Clojure. That is what we did. Now .core has taken its first steps as independent business unit within Siili.
The concept started to form at the beginning of May and after some chewing, we have stated guidelines to our formed group. “Simple made easy.” That’s it. When you work with software you might guess that this isn’t easy at all. The idea behind this is related to modern day craftsmanship and our aim is to make the best possible solutions for complex problems.
So as you probably guessed from the first paragraph .core is about Clojure. Why we chose Clojure? We think that the simple made easy concept is best reached using Clojure. All Turing complete languages are capable of solving computational problems. I’m not denying that. But what we do is best reached using Clojure.
There are many interesting things coming at .core in 2019 and we are hoping to share these things as they come. Keep an eye out for this blog and of course Siili official website. To get more information about this thing I strongly recommend you to drop by this years first Clojure meetup hosted at Siili.
In Tampere we have a saying “aika paljon on virrannut vettä Tammerkoskessa”. I guess that could be roughly translated “a lot has happened since”. And I am pleased about the direction things are heading.
