Welcome to the Clojure Deref! This is a weekly link/news roundup for the Clojure ecosystem. (@ClojureDeref RSS)

Highlights

Big congrats to Amperity on their Series D financing and valuation of $1B, making them another "unicorn" built substantially on Clojure and ClojureScript, approaching 100 Clojure developers. It is great to see these Clojure success stories at scale! Amperity has also been a great contributor to the Clojure ecosystem, so many thanks to them.
