Some notes on Clojure

Friday, November 21st, 2008

The programming language Clojure is enjoying a surge in recent activity and interest, capped by a presentation by its inventor at the end of the Lisp50 program at OOPSLA. Lispy has a good recounting of Hickey’s talk on his blog. There’s interest in forming a study group here in the DC area, under the auspices of Fringe DC. And Clojure is appearing in a lot of blogs I’m reading, surrounded by almost dreamy language like “nirvana” or “I should / wish I were learning this now.” I’ve sat down with the beta version of Stu Halloway’s Programming Clojure, and I’ve read the first third and coded up some examples, and I’m very excited with what I’m finding.
