Pushing asynchrony further into the stack is useful for reliability and
fault tolerance. We can also use it as a basis for Complex Event Processing
using time series windows.
I wrote up a few examples in my blog
if you have the time to check out a longer explanation with code.
I recently wrote a small set of functions to enable HTML5 Server Sent
Events from any Kafka topic which also uses core.async (with an example
using Aleph and Compojure). You might like to check that repo
<https://github.com/raymcdermott/kafka-sse-clj> out too.
