Joyride VS Code using a Clojure REPL

Peter Strömberg and Michiel Borkent will be presenting: "Joyride VS Code using a Clojure REPL"

Peter Strömberg (https://github.com/PEZ) and Michiel Borkent (https://github.com/borkdude) will be presenting: "Joyride VS Code using a Clojure REPL"

What if you could script and control VS Code with a REPL, like you can do with Emacs? What if it is a Clojure REPL? Leveraging SCI, this is what Joyride (https://github.com/BetterThanTomorrow/joyride) lets you do. We’ll take a look at what possibilities this opens, what the limitations are, and what people have done with Joyride so far, four months since the first release.

Peter is a former product manager turned developer by Clojure. He uses VS Code, and lacked a lot of the awesome Clojure support that Emacs users enjoy through CIDER. He decided to try to bring some of that to his editor of choice, resulting in Calva. Peter also feels strongly for the Clojure "Getting Started" experience and is always thinking about ways to contribute to improving it.

Michiel Borkent doesn’t really need introductions in our community. He is the main author of clj-kondo, babashka, jet and so many other Clojure tools. He can be found as @borkdude in various places on the web.
