Clojure was designed to be clear, consistent, practical, and empowering -- and many think it's the best language that ever was.
Tom has been working on applying those same design principles to Clojure's documentation, to help more people get up to speed more quickly. Good source material is out there, but for now the burden is on each learner to search for it, sort through it, and synthesize it. In this talk, Tom will share his approach to creating docs worthy of the Clojure language and its community.

Applying Clojure's Design Principles to its Documentation
Tom has worked as a technical writer and editor, so when he learns a new programming language, he often imagines how the documentation could be better. He is currently fairly obsessed with learning Clojure and making its docs the best programming language documentation that ever was. When he's not doing that he works as a web developer at OHSU in Portland, OR, and co-organizes Puddlecycle's winter bike rides.
