Lessons from Clojure

10th December 2015 in London at Business Design Centre

There are 37 other SkillsCasts available from Scala eXchange 2015

SkillsCast coming soon.

Some lessons from the Clojure community on simplicity, the power of raw data, and a functional subset of Scala modelled on Clojure. The aim is to borrow some of the better ideas from Clojure-land, and also explore the idea that while types are great, there are far more important things that we need to focus on, and Clojure gets many of these things right - so let's steal them for Scala!
