I was skeptical at first of Clojure Remote. Why pay to watch conference videos online? But this is more than just watching videos. It's two tracks of intensive online interaction. You get to chat with other attendees and ask the presenters questions, which are aggregated and up-voted. It's a great way to learn without paying for travel or taking time off. The schedule is out now. I'm glad to support a Clojure Remote, and thanks for supporting the Gazette! Buy your tickets through the link above to save 25% off the normal price.
JUXT is a Clojure consultancy in London, England. They've just published a technology radar in the style of ThoughtWorks, but focused solely on Clojure and its ecosystem. This has inspired me to think about my own personal choices of libraries and how I would organize them.
Solid rules of thumb from Stuart Sierra.
A mammoth talk by Greg Young about Domain Driven Design and Command-Query Responsibility Separation. There is some deep wisdom about append-only data models.

Camille Fournier explains when a rewrite is justified and how to do it.
I've been researching a lot on microservices lately and also on Domain Driven Design (DDD). This talk, by DDD inventor is about both, so I had to watch it. It's made me feel better about microservices than any other talk.
Gerald Jay Sussman presents at LispNYC on dynamic and dangerous systems. Not a classic but interesting.
I Have a Dream Youtube
Today, in the United States, we celebrate the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King. I tend to commemorate it by listening to one of his speeches and thinking about how far we've come and how far we still have to go.
A great visualization of different factors affecting global warming. I wish all of my communication should be so clear.
