cover art

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 - Podcast Episode 039

cover art

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.

Brenton Ashworth - Podcast Episode 037

cover art

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!

One of the most popular posts on our blog in recent history is Michael Nygard's post "Three Book Ideas". The enthusiastic reaction to that post combined with the many interesting conversations I've had with Mike in the past told me it was past time to have Mike on the show. We talked about his "Three Book Ideas" post, physics, the nature of relational data, and a plethora of other interesting topics. I enjoyed it, and I thank him for spending the time with me! I hope you'll enjoy it, too.

While I've got your attention, I'd also like to mention a few things:

Kurt Zimmer of Room Key - Podcast Episode 033

Download this podcast episode.

I've said it before: one of the few downsides to working at Relevance is getting to hear all sorts of cool customer success stories that we can't talk about. Which is why Justin and I were thrilled to record an episode with Kurt Zimmer from Room Key, one of our clients and an enthusiastic user of both Clojure and Datomic. We talked about Relevance's relationship with Room Key, and about Kurt's experience successfully selling cutting-edge technologies into extremely large, conservative organizations.

Kurt is a sharp guy, and it was a pleasure to have him as a guest.
