Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

The Clojure core.async library allows asynchronous communication using channels, with similar syntax and capabilities to Google's Go language. The core.async library solves many common problems in an elegant way, cleaning up event callback setup and adding simple concurrency primitives. It also highlights one of the advantages of the Lisp nature of Clojure: channels add operators that are consistent with existing Clojure operators, seamlessly weaving new functionality into the language core. In addition, core.async is supported in both Clojure and ClojureScript (despite JavaScript's lack of threads), utilizing underlying platform abstractions to provide a consistent interface to both languages.
