Ambrose Bonnaire-Sergeant has made quite a splash recently with his campaign to fund development of core.typed, a library that provides a gradual type system for Clojure. In this episode, we talk extensively with Ambrose about core.typed just minutes before he launched the campaign.

In this landmark episode, Craig interviews Justin Gehtland and Rich Hickey as they discuss the merger of Relevance and Metadata Partners (the company behind Datomic) to form a new company: Cognitect. They discuss why they made the decision to join forces, what will stay the same with the products and services that Relevance and Rich currently provide, and what will be different and better. They discuss the choice of the name, and how it reflects the new company's philosophy of craftsmanship and considered design.
This is the final episode of ThinkRelevance: The Podcast; happily, it is also the first episode of The Cognicast.

Alex Miller is the organizer of some of the best conferences I've ever been to (and one I haven't): Strange Loop, Clojure/West, and Lambda Jam. He is also Relevance's newest employee. As we both found ourselves in Durham recently, it was the perfect time to sit down together and talk conferences, community, and Clojure.

You've had the joy of listening to Craig's insightful questioning of our guests for a long time now; it is our great pleasure to turn the microphones around and capture Craig Andera on the other end of the questions. Guest host Justin Gehtland gets Craig to talk about his career path that led to working at Relevance, his changing taste in technologies, and the genesis and details of ThinkRelevance: the Podcast. We hope you enjoy getting to know Craig a little better.

On episode 27, Tim Ewald gave us an overview of Pedestal, Relevance's open source framework for building web applications. We spent most of our time talking about the server side of that technology, but I think the app side of Pedestal is in many ways even more fascinating. Because it contains so many new ideas, it's also something people have had a harder time getting started with.
To help people understand the concepts in Pedestal App, Brenton Ashworth recently authored the Pedestal App Tutorial. I highly recommend people check it out - it's a great resource. On this episode, Brenton does a great job of explaining the concepts in Pedestal App. I'm sure you'll come away with a better understanding of the library. I definitely did. I thank Brenton for taking the time to talk to me!

Those of you lucky enough to have heard Neal Ford speak on anything know that he is one smart, funny, and perceptive dude. It was my great pleasure to have him on the show, where we talked about Evolutionary Architecture, Clojure, Datomic, the poetry of Donald Rumsfeld, the ThoughtWorks Radar, and the role of fake LinkedIn profiles in software development. I thank Neal for joining me on this episode!
