Today we’re talking with Mike Fikes. He is a software developer who specializes in Clojure Script, but has been building custom hardware to run it on.
- Clojure Script is built on Clojure, which is built on Lisp, which is built on Java (whew!)
- Mike has been taking Ben Eater’s class and following along building custom hardware to learn more about how computers work. Ben has been a guest on Chris’ other podcast, The Amp Hour.
- Mike has also been working with Bil Herd, who designed the Commodore 128. Bil has also been a guest on The Amp Hour.
- The boards Mike designed work with Espirit, a fork of Espruino.
- You can buy the boards on Tindie, if you’d like to try them out.
- Mike gave a talk about this subject at Clojure North a couple of months ago.
