Clojure is a programming language that shares the powerful meta-programming facilities of Lisp, has an agent-based approach to concurrency like Erlang, and can use or implement Java libraries.

Howard Lewis Ship on Clojure at GatorJUG

Howard gave a talk about Clojure last night at the GatorJUG. Wow! We all learned so much. Howard used IntelliJ Idea to code on the fly from memory. We saw some sweet functionality and I think we're all excited about learning more. If you missed last…Continue

Delivered a Clojure presentation for GatorJUG.

Larry Diehl's Clojure presentation for OrlandoJUG will be on February 26. It looks like his presentation will be more thorough, including discussion of multimethods and charting/graphing.

I wrote an article about authentication and authorization in Compojure, in which I show how to create a login form and restrict pages to authorized users.

I wrote an article about using PostgreSQL with Compojure, in which I describe setting up PostgreSQL on Ubuntu, adding a PostgreSQL JDBC library to the classpath, retrieving database records with clojure.contrib.sql, and rendering HTML with compojure.html.

So far I have found a small number of people interested in it, yes. But, I'm the only person that I know that is programming anything with it at the moment.

Hopefully after the OrlandoJUG presentation I'll be able to gauge interest more accurately.

The number of people that are interested in Orlambda will also affect the kinds of presentations. If a lot of people end up being interested, then the meetings would be slower and more introductory.

But, I think it's more likely that a small group of people (<10) would come at first. If that's the case then it could be more fun because we would be able to assume knowledge after the first couple meetings, and move into more complex and interesting presentations.

Have you found anyone else in Orlando that's interested in Clojure? It's a long drive from Gainesville, but I could probably come for weekend meetings.
Comment by Larry Diehl on December 23, 2008 at 8:42pm
I should also mention that I'm trying to put together a Clojure users group for Orlando, you can follow that progress here:
Comment by Larry Diehl on December 23, 2008 at 8:28pm
I moved from Ruby to Common Lisp, and now Clojure. In fact, I'll be giving a Clojure presentation in February for the OrlandoJUG :)
Comment by Eric Lavigne on December 23, 2008 at 8:04pm
Larry, your Cry article makes it look like you miss using Lisp. Why are you using Ruby instead?
Comment by Larry Diehl on December 22, 2008 at 7:56pm
Hey Eric, saw that on the mailing list. Didn't know you were in Gainesville, I'm down in Orlando.

Recap of AWS re:Invent 2022

During multiple sessions and keynotes at the largest AWS yearly conference, the cloud provider announced new services and features, with the focus more on business solutions and data options than new building blocks.

Article: Adopting Low Code/No Code: Six Fitnesses to Look For

When selecting a no-code/low-code platform, six key fitnesses should be examined: purpose fit, cost fit, ops fit, user fit, use-case fit, and organization fit. The IT team should be heavily involved in this decision as they play a pivotal role in helping citizen developers with platform adoption.
