PurelyFunctional.tv Newsletter 252: Brand, Distributed, Feelings

Issue 252 - November 20, 2017

Hi Clojurists,

Last week I opened up the Early Access Sale for Understanding Re-frame. You can get 60% off the unfinished course with access to all new lessons as they comes out. Of course, members get access to everything already. Add Understanding Re-frame to the cart, Use coupon code REFRAMEPEAP when you're checking out, and enjoy the new checkmark functionality :) The coupon will expire soon.

I had one free lesson in the course, to give a feel for what you'd learn. The lesson was an overview of the whole Re-frame stack. But because it's over four hours already (and growing), I decided to make a second lesson free. This one is an overview of the parts of Re-frame.

Please enjoy the issue.

Rock on!
