One of the great things about very robust and powerful abstractions is that they can give you tremendous leverage. The leverage can be so great that you can build something much greater than the sum of its parts. However, I worry that the web is an end to this kind of abstraction. I'd like to explore why that is and what we can do about it.
How a programming language can be an idea.
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.
You actually need to learn nothing. But it's more complicated than that. This article will show you what can set you apart.
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.
