More resources for Clojure: Rich Hickey videos

November 30, 2008

I’m posting a link to videos of presentations on Clojure by its creator, Rich Hickey:

Most of these are Hickey’s slides over audio of Hickey and the audience, although at least one gives you a look at the man himself. Videos are 60-90 minutes, and some presentations span two videos (!) So far, all the ones I’ve seen are good quality.

Topics covered include Clojure for Lispers, Clojure for Java Programmers, Clojure data strutures, and concurrency in Clojure.

Announcing the DC Clojure study group

Members of Fringe DC are organizing a Washington DC area study group around learning Clojure and hacking some righteous artifacts with it. The first meeting is Sunday, December 7, at 1PM at Chief Ike’s Mambo Room, 1725 Columbia Rd NW. We’ll be meeting in person for about 3 hours every 2 or 3 weeks, and we’ll have an online forum for collaboration and contributions. Interested parties are welcome to come by. See some pointers below to prepare yourself so you can make the most of our time together.
