Highlights from the Clojure Exchange Conference 2016 in London. Jack summarises his favourite talks on building great systems and a new web framework called Arachne.
There's a lot of hype about VR at the moment; but how does it actually work? And what does it mean for us in the real world?
When you’ve got someone who’s best friend is Sketch, someone who knows all the secrets of Craft, a couple of casual coders and four design lovers, what can go wrong?
The Jobs to Be Done (JTBD) Framework is a powerful tool to understand customer context and innovate for success. In a market place full of distracted, unpredictable humans innovating takes more than knowing your customer demographics, you need to get into their heads and be prepared for the use of your product within the context of your customers’ lives.

We have just released phase one of our new site – and it’s dressed in the brand we have been developing over the past couple of months. So how can I justify that title…? Well, I’d like to tell you a bit about how we have approached this project, and how the key decisions were reached in five intense, challenging and rewarding days.
Believe it or not you can get infinite scaling, full security, and high performance for nearly zero operational cost. You should concentrate on building features that add value for your customers. And you can do that much faster when you don’t have to worry about anything else.
One of the less visible features we have rolled out as part of the brand new Red Badger website is service workers support. Alex explains why we think service workers are so great.
Nico explains the “theory” behind version control (Git and Github) in plain English so that you understand the big picture of how software engineers work. No code. Nothing to download. No mess. No fuss.
The November Functional meetup brought much merriment to the freezing streets of London. Hot pizza, cold beer, clever likeminded people, and of course the main event: the talks.
Matt went to Reactive Conf in Bratislava last month; here are his top tips on which of the talks are worth catching up on.
Red Badger recently hosted an event called “The Future of the Cloud: Go beyond servers & containers to increase speed to market” in collaboration with Horizon Business Innovation.
At the end of October I gave a talk at Serverless Conf London about writing Serverless Framework plugins.
What follows is a high level account of a recent trip to attend a masterclass for the highly popular business tool, the Business Model Canvas. This method, combined with lean startup is taught in some the world’s most respected business schools.
All in all our trip to StrangeLoop 2016 and St. Louis was fantastic and personally I will be looking into going again next year. Thanks to Alex Millar, the whole StrangeLoop team, and the StrangeLoop community for making such a friendly and welcoming conference, thanks to Red Badger for letting us have such a great time with our training budgets, and thanks to my friends, Anna and Viktor for putting up with me when I’m grumpy, jetlagged, and decaffeinated.
I’ve been wanting to go to a Clojure conference for a long while. Partly to get to know the international Clojure community better, and partly to experience first hand the diversity of talks that these conferences offer. EuroClojure was a natural choice for me this year, as I could not make it to its bigger brother in the US, Clojure/conj.
I went to the Serverless Conf last week. I met a lot of great people, heard quite a few inspiring talks, and presented a talk myself. People tend to say that serverless is fast and reduces cost of our infrastructure – but is that actually true? Hint: I still think it's awesome.
As we work with larger and more complex companies, we become the people to introduce Agile ways of working into an organisation. However, when you’ve worked using Agile for a decade or more, as many of us have, you often assume some knowledge that people don’t have.

As UX designers we are always aiming to balance the needs of the user with the requirements of the business and with what’s technologically feasible.
