Hi all. I am wondering what are the chances of finding a part time project in Clojure / CLJS on the node back end? And what's the best way to go about finding one

I don't think there's many people doing node on the backend with Clojure. The jvm is considered better by many.

I'd only play with the possibility for social reasons within a given team (with that sort of thinking, I once successfully pushed for using TypeScript on the backend - bit of a rare choice at the time)

@ I agree, there are some people who dislike jvm (or have no background in it). Also writing for servlerless stack (aws Lambda) is more reasonable in node backend, because jvm takes ages to start up and it beats the purpose

I created mine in my company. They wanted a web app and I told them I needed superpowers to achieve what they asked. So I got ClojureScript

It has been a really cool ride so far.
