From the event’s description:

So, what is Clojure?

C# has been adding exciting new features with every release, but many of these have been available in other languages for years or even decades. By examining some of the features of these other languages, we can hope to glean what’s in store for the future of C#. Clojure is a JVM-based Lisp with an integral and interesting approach to concurrency. In this talk, we’ll examine those features, after a brief introduction to Clojure syntax.

Who is Craig?

Craig Andera … is an independent consultant with Wangdera Corporation, where he holds the rank of Jedi Master. He focuses on the design and implementation of large-scale, web-based systems.

Unofficial Clojure 1.0 release candidate

April 28, 2009

Clojure 1.0 is on the way, and as a result a lot of activity is occurring in the Subversion repository.  Revision 1357 of the Clojure source was proclaimed the likely release candidate, although a few minor changes have been checked in since.  Likewise, clojure-contrib revision 723 is the likely release candidate corresponding to 1.0. It should be interesting to watch what unfolds in the source until the actual release.

It’s not too late to contribute, and no contribution is too small.


Clojure Roundup: Post-Thanksgiving vacation edition

December 1, 2008

I will try to post Clojure roundups as often as I can… best laid plans of mice and men and all that.

Over at Lambda the Ultimate there is a brief discussion about the recent inclusion of trampolining for mutual recursion added to recent Clojure builds.

Rich Hickey’s presentation at the 2008 JVM Languages Sumit is a must watch.

Bill Clementson gives a nice overview of getting on-demand Java documentation rolled into EMACS Slime mode for Clojure.  More recently, Mr. Clementson posed that Clojure is the language for concurrency-oriented programming.

Our own Craig Andera does some insanity with C# and Clojure.

Clojure recently incorporated a new regex syntax.

That’s all for now.  Add anything that I missed to the comments section.
