Ada Des Etages

She is a programmer and a poet from Trinidad and Tobago. She starting using Clojure ~5 yeas ago when she realized that she could use it to make music with Overtone and has not looked back since.



Using rule engines for charts and poetry

My journey through building websites with rule engines. I will discuss a Clojure charting application built using a general-purpose rules engine to introduce the concepts. Then I will walk-through applications based on a Clojurescript rule engine made specifically for rendering React components. The applications include a todo list, a deck of affirmations, and a text editor for writing poems. Finally, I will show you how you can build your own applications using a starter that I'm making.
