I've been considering learning Erlang or Elixir. But someone suggested I check out Lisp-Flavored Erlang. I watched this talk and was really impressed. I'm doubly impressed that it's created by Robert Virding, one of the creators of Erlang. Other presentations are available on the official site .
Clojure Remote is a new Clojure conference coming in February that will be completely online. It's being put on by Ryan Neufeld, co-author of the Clojure Cookbook. Sign up for the mailing list and fill out the survey he sends you. You can have a very direct effect on what the conference is about.

A longish think-piece about the pains of writing software that we have learned to live with. Lots of nice references.
The speakers have been announced for Clojure/conj. I would have liked more diversity in the speakers. There is a palpable move toward more practical industry applications and away from the more far-out, theoretical or philosophical talks that used to dominate.
