Clojure for Pythonistas

And Now for Something Completely Different...

An intro to Clojure for Pythonistas

(And now for something completely different…)

Clojure is a dynamic, practical modern Lisp with an emphasis on functional programming using immutable data by default. It has built-in language level constructs for concurrency and parallelism. Like Python, it is a general-purpose language but that is hosted on the JVM, CLR or JavaScript runtimes. Clojure aims to reduce the incidental complexity of the program itself by allowing the programmer to compose programs from simple building blocks while helping them to solve messy, real-world problems.

In this talk, we will take a whirlwind tour of Clojure by comparing and contrasting with Python. Hopefully, you will come away with a taste for travel beyond Python-land, and take away some ideas that might improve your Python programs.

As ever, Sharpe Recruitment and Pebble will be supplying the pizzas. Doors open sharp at 6pm on Wednesday. We're looking forward to seeing you there!
