Clojure is a new dynamic programming language for the Java Virtual Machine. Clojure introduces innovative ideas around state management and concurrency, while inheriting the best ideas from the long history of Lisp-like languages. It is a language designed to solve real problems, some of which are so pervasive in current programming practice that we don’t even recognize them as problems. This talk will provide an introduction to Clojure’s syntax and key concepts, with examples of how they can make a real impact in large, complex systems.
Stuart Sierra is a developer at Relevance, a member of Clojure/core, and the co-author of Practical Clojure (Apress, 2010). He is heavily involved in the development of Clojure and has written numerous open-source libraries. Prior to 2010, he worked at Columbia Law School on AltLaw, a groundbreaking open-source search engine for legal scholarship, making use of Hadoop, Lucene, and semantic web technologies.
