http://hyperfiddle.net/ is Wordpress for Data—automatic admin dashboards built around the idea of progressive enhancement. Clojure, ClojureScript, React.js, Reagent. We made this together— design, engineering, ops, everything.
This is a database/ORM talk. We deep dive into the relational model, graph model (neo4j), and eavt model (datomic) as well as CQRS, and how exactly your choice of database dictates the type of accidental complexity you find in your backend. Datomic solves this complexity and lets us climb the ladder of abstraction a few rungs higher, and this talk explores where we might end up.
"The cost or pain of criticism is almost zero, because we haven't even fully coded it yet. I am much more willing to say 'We need a new design' when I sit down and I'm the one that's gonna be writing it as opposed to when I look at it and I'm like, 'I don't even wanna try to explain what I think the right design is. It's so complic... You know what? Just whatever, yeah it's fine. You had a spelling mistake here.'"
