I've taken the liberty of creating a clojure-houston stream on the Clojurians Zulip -- https://clojurians.zulipchat.com, https://clojureverse.org/t/introducing-clojurians-zulip/3173
@adam622 I have a small software company this is building a job-shop system in clj/cljs/re-frame, which is most of what we do in clojure. This is a legacy system that is getting replaced. I also do a considerable amount of cljs work on node.js on ras-pis that are used to run escape-rooms. Also hack C++ for a MajOilCo as my day job, but that's another story.
@hoppy awesome! Does the job-shop system involve embedded systems? It just now occurred to me that cljs could be used on microcontrollers via something like https://github.com/neonious/lowjs (in Elixir-land, they do this with https://nerves-project.org). I've spent some time with https://www.balena.io on the Raspberry Pi (Balena deploys software to IoT devices using containers as a packaging format).
The controller we built is our own design.
It's more of a framework for light industrial automation, which is kind of what the complex escape rooms are.
:thumbsup: very cool
we have a lot of ESP based props that bark things on mqtt, and the room controller kind of orchestrates all that.
Interesting. For home automation, I use MQTT to integrate my (legacy) usage of SmartThings with Home Assistant (open-source hub)
I'm Chris Oakman. I live inside the loop near Shepherd and Washington. My career has primary been UI design and development. I learned ClojureScript ~6 years ago now and very happy with that decision 😎
Recently left the ThreatGrid team at Cisco where I did CLJS for the last ~3 years or so. I am currently contracting with a startup in the Med Center that is moving an Angular 1.x app over to re-frame.
I also teach part-time at DigitalCrafts - https://www.digitalcrafts.com They are based out of HEADQUARTERS co-working space in EaDo, but moving to The Cannon near City Center in April. If we ever wanted to host a meetup I could volunteer the classroom space :thumbsup::skin-tone-2:
Do you work with Rakshak Talwar by chance?
Right up the street from me (down by Shep. and Westheimer). I'm just starting out with Clojure, focused on learning Fulcro. Are you working with Marcus over at http://www.luminaremed.com?
Very cool to hear that cljs is being used at a few misc. places here in town
Marcus and I met through Station (I'm a member there and at The Cannon)
Was at HQ for the first time yesterday, beautiful facility!
CLJS + node.js! 🎉💯😄 I'm a fan.
I was there! I teach class on Saturday mornings 10-2pm
Yeah - it's a great space. Although I hear The Cannon is nice too.
I was at HQ to interview with Panos @ Zenus yesterday -- I know he works with someone by that name
Yes - Rakshak works at Zenus 🙂 When I read "tracking people who enter a nightclub" I thought that may have been them.
Panos tells me I must meet Rakshak, since he and I both love our espresso
Right now I work at a retail point-of-sale and marketing automation and loyalty company. Think earning points when you buy from a store
Gosh the world is tiny! I love it1
@chrisoakman do you use cljs only for frontend or also with nodejs?
I have done both. But primarily use it on the frontend.1🔥
Are there ever any Houston Clojure meetups? I know Nelson used to run one, but I was never able to attend with a scheduling conflict. I sometimes go to the Houston Functional Programmer's Meetup https://www.meetup.com/Houston-Functional-Programmers/
Thinking of giving a talk about re-frame there in March or April
Thank you for that meetup link! I'd enjoy hearing a local talk about re-frame. https://www.meetup.com/Clojure-Houston-User-Group seems fairly inactive
I'd like to see the houston clojure group revived.1👍
