Clojure NYC: Vert.x Intro

Vert.x is a lightweight, high performance application platform for the JVM. It enables polyglot modules to communicate asynchronously across a shared event bus in a distributed environment. In this talk at the Clojure NYC Meetup, John Chapin gives an overview of Vert.x concepts, practical usage, and Clojure support. He also presents a live demonstration of several key Vert.x concepts in the context of an example client/server chat application.

The slides for the presentation can be found here and the code can be found here.
