We have a new date for the event, 16th July, I hope this still fits in with your plans to attend. Sorry for the change.

## Exploring REPL tooling with socket prepl

A peek under the hood of how Clojure tools connect to the REPL followed by a deeper dive into how prepl works and what I've learned from implementing almost IDE like tools with it.

Starting with a brief discussion of nREPL, a network REPL that provides a server and client, common APIs for tooling and other tools to evaluate Clojure code in remote environments. We will show that CIDER / nREPL is based around middleware, with the ethos that the tool and middleware are one cohesive thing.
