rcustodio 2017-09-11 19:05:06 Hi... is netty better than java socket?
seancorfield 2017-09-11 19:05:43 I suspect that's one of those "It Depends" questions... better for what? Better in which way?
rcustodio 2017-09-11 19:07:13 I'm playing with clojure.. making online games (backend).. and to comunicate between client <-> server I will use TCP/UDP of course, but I'm not sure which should I use Or a backend server like "mainframe", all connect to it...
seancorfield 2017-09-11 19:08:47 So you're going to be communicating server to server, rather than web browser client to server @rcustodio ?
rcustodio 2017-09-11 19:09:05 I'm new in clojure and java libs.. There is server to server (the mainframe like)... and there is client to server (game like) Yes
bengineer 2017-09-11 19:10:50 Howdy ClojureFolks. Ive been inspired to check out Clojure from a blog article about Functional Programming in JavaScript being an anti-pattern.. they recommended ClojureScript.. and then someone recommended Clojure instead of that, to begin with. Any good “hello world” resources I have to check out?
seancorfield 2017-09-11 19:10:52 Not sure what I'd suggest for that. If you were building a web app game, the obvious answer would be "use web sockets" and I'd probably point you at Sente which uses core.async to provide channels that communicate back and forth between web client and server in a really nice way. I'd probably avoid direct server-to-server comms if possible -- and use a message queue instead...
bfabry 2017-09-11 19:11:50 @bengineer the most popular introductory clojure book is free online, it's called "Clojure for the Brave and True"
rcustodio 2017-09-11 19:12:10 I see... but I dunno if the game will be browser.. The "front" developer says he prefer to use scala to make for mobile Like RabbitMQ?
bfabry 2017-09-11 19:12:33 clojure vs clojurescript is really a "what do you want to do?" question
seancorfield 2017-09-11 19:13:35 @bengineer Getting up and running with Clojure on the JVM is a lot easier than ClojureScript in the browser -- so I'd "learn Clojure" on the back end first, so you can avoid a lot of the tooling complexity.
bengineer 2017-09-11 19:14:22 i’m already liking it :+1:
rcustodio 2017-09-11 19:14:40 @bengineer I agree with @seancorfield , I think you should get used with clojure before, FP
