Talk: Cursive: a different type of IDE

Background

Colin Fleming's talk at the conj is about Cursive Clojure, a Clojure IDE that runs as a plugin for IntelliJ IDEA, a very popular Java IDE.

Why it matters

Cursive Clojure uses static analysis to provide some nice features that are hard to come by in Clojure editors, including underlining errors. Also, since it is built into IntelliJ, it handles projects (including projects with some Java classes) seamlessly. I have heard more than one person mention that they prefer it to Emacs after using Emacs for years.
