Get 'go'ing with core.async

core.async is the latest Clojure tool for managing concurrency and avoiding callback hell, but do you know how to use it? This workshop will give you the necessary hands-on experience to be able to build Clojure or ClojureScript applications using core.async.

This workshop will begin with a brief overview of core.async's primitives and common ways they are composed to solve problems in your programs. You will then put this knowledge in practice by building a chat application that uses core.async on both the server and the client.

In order to complete this workshop, you should have some experience with Clojure or ClojureScript and a working Clojure or ClojureScript environment.
