Hello there! Almost eight years back Tomas Petricek wrote a blog post introducing BlockingQueueAgent and followed it up with another blog post on how to apply it to solve an Image Processing problem using the pipeline concurrency pattern. In this blog post, we are going to learn how to port this example using Hopac's BoundedMb abstraction, aka Bounded Mailbox. Image processing pipeline As defined by Tomas in his blog post, the image processing pipeline works as depicted in the below image.

Hi there! Welcome back to the sixth part of my blog series on concurrent programming in fsharp. In this part, we are going to learn how to deal with state changes while doing concurrent programming through a fun example. Time Bomb Simulator The example that we are going to see is a time bomb simulator. The time bomb transitions through different states as shown below during its lifecycle. The associated fsharp type TimeBomb will have the following signature

Hi, In the last blog post, we learned how to implement RESTful APIs using Compojure-API & Toucan. We are going to generalise that example by creating a little abstraction around it. The abstraction that we are going to create is going to help us in creating similar RESTful endpoints for any domain entities with less code. Let's dive in! The Book Entity To abstract what we did there, we need a few more specific implementation.

Hi, In my last blog post on our experiences in using Clojure in production, I mentioned that we used Compojure API and Toucan to implement CRUD APIs. The abstraction that we created using these libraries helped us to create HTTP CRUD APIs for any domain entity in a matter of minutes. In this small blog-post series, I am going to share how we did it. This first part is going to focus on developing a RESTful CRUD APIs for a specific domain entity.
