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.



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.
