A look back at 2011

December 31, 2011 ·

In years past, I have gone back over each month of my blog and posted a review of the year based on what I've been posting during the year. I skipped that for 2009 and 2010 for various reasons but decided to reinstate it this year because 2011 has been a very different year for me.

Testing your project against multiple versions of Clojure

December 18, 2011 ·

As Clojure continues to evolve, it's a good idea to ensure your projects work with multiple versions of Clojure so that you are prepared for the future. Luckily, Leiningen makes that easy with a plugin called lein-multi which allows you to specify multiple sets of project dependencies and run tests against all of them automatically.

Want to learn Clojure, online?

November 30, 2011 ·

Starting on December 5th and running for six weeks, the author of "Clojure in Action", Amit Rathore, is leading an online introduction to Clojure course for just $325. See the CodeLesson web site for more details on this Clojure course.

I'm fortunate that Amit is local to me so I've attended two of his one-day training courses already. In fact my first real introduction to Clojure was Amit's "ProClojure Bootcamp" back in May 2010 and it was a great jumpstart. More recently I attended his "Day of Macros" course which was pretty mind-blowing. Each of those cost $199, so the six week online course is great value since it will cover all of that and more!

If you're at all interested in Clojure, this would be an excellent way to come up to speed and find out what all the hype is about - for a very reasonable price!
