After working on a large civil engineering project for a while followed by some hammock time, I’ve come to think that civil engineering projects should have project-specific databases for exhanging vital data. I’ve seen people do (much) manual work that results from not being able to have a common domain model. Picture people with different responsibilities sending Excel sheets and JSON files around, some working with Python, most working with graphical interfaces.
So now I’m setting up Datomic Starter, and trying to make a decent proof of concept for future reference. If this happens to go well, further projects could be really exciting for us programatically inclined engineers working with disciplines other than software.
