Talk: Pattern Matching in Clojure: Best Practices

Sean Johnson's talk at Clojure/West is about pattern matching in Clojure.

Background

The built-in pattern matching in Clojure is not as powerful as in Haskell and Erlang. But, being a Lisp, it's easy to write a pattern matching macro. Which has been done, it's called core.match, and it's great. This talk is an experience report from using pattern matching in Clojure. Check out Pattern Matching & Predicate Dispatch, a talk by core.match's creator, David Nolen.
