Poor open-source development practices, neglect for the beginner experience, and lack of communication have come up as complaints against how Cognitect stewards Clojure. I address the complaints with a plea that we do more as a community.
I was on the Defn Podcast. We talked about Clojure, testing, and PHP :) Here is a transcript.
My third rehearsal for my upcoming Clojure/conj talk.
My upcoming Clojure/conj talk is fast approaching. I recorded two rehearsals in two days. Watch them!
We organized a Clojure workshop. Here's what went right and what we should do next time.
Concurrency and parallelism are concepts that we make use of every day off of the computer. I give some real world examples and we analyze them for concurrency and parallelism.

Schema and clojure.spec aim to solve similar problems. There are significant differences, though, that might not be obvious at first.
Clojure hashmaps are one of the workhorse data structures in Clojure. There are two main patterns commonly used. We also discuss some interesting properties.
The ClojureBridge curriculum includes excellent instructions for installing Clojure on a variety of systems. They are well suited for beginners. I have adapted the Windows 8 instructions for my recommendations.
