Clojure. Seriously!

Clojure started as a curiosity and a plaything. But that's changed. In the last few years the popularity of Clojure has grown enormously; while the language itself has matured. It's time we changed the way we look at this language; because it just might be _the_ language of the next decade.- tweet! #clojurex
