2009 Session: Clojure

Wednesday, 16:40 - 17:30
Track: Effective Languages

  • Clojure provides all the low-ceremony goodness you know and love from dynamic languages such as Ruby and Python
  • Clojure's sequence library turns the tables on OO, providing a powerful set of verbs that can work with a small, standard set of nouns
  • Clojure includes Lisp's signature feature: Treating code as data through macros
  • Clojure's emphasis on immutability and support for software transactional memory make it a viable option for taking advantage of massively parallel hardware


Clojure, a "Lisp unconstrained by backward compatibility." In this talk, you will see why Clojure deserves serious consideration as the next big JVM language.
