Reactive Brno Meetups: 2016#5 | Matúš MATY Fedák

The fifth Reactive Brno Meetup was headlined by Matúš “Maty” Fedák, who works as a coder at VacuumLabs — the company behind ReactiveConf.

Maty’s presentation was on Datomic. During his talk, many questions were asked and there were also plenty of pizza and beers consumed.

Datomic: Database Done Better

Datomic is a revolutionary database system by Cognitect — the creators of Clojure and ClojureScript. The presentation showed us how immutability, horizontal read scalability, ACID-compliant transactions, and reliable caching can make your software simpler, faster, and more robust.

About Maty
Matúš Fedák has worked as a programmer for more than six years. Starting with mainstream languages (C++, C#, Javascript, Ruby, Dart), he found that it was much easier to produce a robust codebase with functional languages such as Clojure, Elixir, Elm, OCaml, or Haskell. He studied at the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics, and Informatics in Bratislava and spent a semester abroad in Amsterdam, although he later decided that the university environment wasn’t a place for him.

He enjoys traveling, TV series, movies, sports, and PC games. From time to time, he teaches React and Clojure at meetups and conferences.
