Clojure Gazette 1.59
/conj in full swing
November 15, 2013 ====================================
Ah, Clojure/Conj. I would love to go one day. I've been to three conferences this year (all by the lovely Alex Miller and all supremely awesome) and I just could not justify the fourth. But, oh, to be there! To smell the parens wafting through the air, to rub elbows with the maintainers of the great libraries we know and love, and to get a piece of that Clojure birthday cake! Maybe next year.
P.S. I love hearing from readers. Just reply to this email!
ClojureBridge is forming now to create a safe, non-judgmental place for anyone who wants to learn to program with Clojure in a supportive group environment.
Sign up to participate! They are looking for teachers, organizers, sponsors, and students.
I've been following the Conj on Twitter. Envy has been rising.
@JenniferSmithCo has been live-noting presentations at Clojure/Conj (happening now!). Almost like being there.
More envy. These are Ryan Neufeld 's photos from the Conj.
Expounding on some of the difficulties of using monads in Clojure.
A new "web application ecosystem". By "ecosystem", it looks like they mean "set of libraries that work well together". It looks well-built and worth a look.
A blast from the past. The software is dated, but Hypercard is still unequaled in terms of ease of building a robust, end-user application.
