Exploring Clojure
Share this event

This will be an introduction to Clojure by exploring the rationale for Clojure’s existence: why Rich Hickey, after many years of writing large-scale, concurrent systems in C++, Java, and C# decided to create a dynamic, functional Lisp. Guy Steele, a co-author of the Java Language Specification once said (tongue-in-cheek) “We were not out to win over the Lisp programmers; we were after the C++ programmers. We managed to drag a lot of them about halfway to Lisp.” Let’s see what happens if we go the rest of the way. If all goes well, we’ll get a better understanding of the design behind Clojure and a good start into writing Clojure code.
