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!
