Clojure in Finance
It’s interesting to read the various snippets of Clojure bank usage that are on the web. Based on a quick Google, there Deutsche, UBS (blogged about previously) and Citi as a minimum. The general pattern appears to be that within a bank, a particular area manages to persuade management to accept the “new” language into the fold. Pithering About provides some reasons for Clojure usage on a middle office project.
One interesting attribute of Datomic is the time component, offering anyone is finance the possible usage of Datomic from a tickDB perspective. I’d be curious to know of anyone who has PoC’d this concept, as it would make an interesting alternative to other vendor products such as kdb and oneTick.
