Hi Functional Programmers,
This will be a short issue since I'm on vacation.
Just a couple of reminders:
Prices on memberships to PurelyFunctional.tv are going up in January. If you're a member before the prices go up, you'll keep your prices forever, so buy one today.

Robert Stuttaford is the CTO of Cognician and has been on the cutting edge of Clojure development for years. I've loved following his adventures trying out the latest Clojure tech.
