Slides from a talk I delivered on 28.03.2015 at LambdaCon in Bologna, Italy.
At stylefruits we've been using Clojure on production since late 2012. We've made a lot of mistakes and we've learned a lot. This talk is dedicated to the newest addition to our infrastructure: a Clojure REST-inspired API. Taught by our previous mistakes in the realm of deployment and scalability we've set our requirements high: we're aiming for continuous delivery, high availability, dynamic scaling and pauseless deployments under load. Aside from deployment matters, Clojure proves to be an excellent choice to build a modular and stateless service. In this talk we're going to share our experiences, both good and bad, gained while prototyping, deploying and maintaining our newest project.
