Sponsor: Clojure Remote

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.
