I felt guilty this week for not mentioning it in the last issue. It could have convinced more people to participate. But I also don't think the Gazette is the best forum for that kind of timely news.

There are great, free materials for learning Clojure for both beginners and intermediates, and the number is growing every day. This article collects some of the best resources and groups them by type.
