PurelyFunctional.tv Newsletter 205: Parallelism, Reducers, Datomic

Free Beginner Workshop

From OO to Clojure Workshop!

Watch my free workshop to help you learn Clojure faster and shift your paradigm to functional.


Issue 205 - December 26, 2016


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.

Get the JVM Fundamentals for Clojure in the Early Access Program. Get what's available now and updates as more comes out. Prices go up before the course is done. If you're a member, you already have access.

Have a good New Year!

Rock on!

Robert Stuttaford Clojure Remote Interview

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. So I was very excited to interview him about his upcoming Clojure Remote talk. He'll be talking about getting started with Datomic. He's been using it for a long time, so there's bound to be some wisdom in his talk. Get your tickets before the prices go up in January.


Organizing Functional Code for Parallel Execution; or, foldl and foldr Considered Slightly Harmful Vimeo

This is a great talk from Guy Steele about rethinking linked lists. They are not great for parallel execution since they are inherently sequential. This talk was an inspiration for Clojure's reducers library.


Anatomy of a Reducer

Rich Hickey discusses the background of the Reducers library.
