My first #ClojureX done and I’ve already spent the morning thinking about what I could possibly talk about in 2017. Hands down one of the best developer conferences I’ve attended. It’s all about the community and the Clojure community gets that 100%, it showed over the two days.

Many many thanks to everyone at SkillsMatter for looking me, the weary traveler, the tea was helpful. Also great to meet some of the folk I regularly talk to on the Clojurians Slack channel.

A couple of things following my talk now I’ve watched it back. If you want to watch then this is the link: https://skillsmatter.com/skillscasts/9153-introducing-streaming-processing-with-kafka-and-the-onyx-platform

Firstly, when you create the Onyx app with lein it does create the docker compose file but it only has the Zookeeper element, not the Kafka one – that has to be added in afterwards.

Secondly, the percentage scheduler adds up to 100, I said zero. Brain detached for a second, thought one thing and something else came out.

Apologies, I don’t like giving out wrong information.

Craig and Darcey would have been proud, kind of, perhaps.

Here’s to 2017.
