Jeaye Wilkerson ( will be presenting:
"The jank programming language"
jank ( is a Clojure dialect on LLVM with C interop. In this talk, Jeaye will cover jank's use cases, some challenges around building a native Clojure dialect, and some insights about Clojure itself found only by spelunking deep into the Clojure compiler. + Jeaye has a background in C systems programming, focusing on games
and game engines. After several years of that, he co-founded an
e-sports tournament startup written in full-stack Clojure for another
5 years. These days, he’s at Electronic Arts (EA) building tooling
used to make some of the world’s top games.
