Hyperfiddle: Compiler Managed Network Connections (S03 E06)



Published
Hyperfiddle is an app builder in Clojure/Clojurescript that uses a compiler to manage the network connections in the app for you. We discuss what makes code easy vs simple, arches for software, home-cooked apps, and the implications of a compiler for everything.
