core.async: A Different Approach to Asynchronous Programming with Clojure and ClojureScript

by Zef Hemel on  Jul 24, 2013

While it has been less than a month since the announcement of the core.async Clojure/ClojureScript library, a number of blog posts have been published describing how to use it effectively to avoid "callback hell" in front-end code, and showing off simple code resulting in some impressive demos.

The Database as a Value

by Zef Hemel on  Jun 14, 2013

During QCon New York 2013, Rich Hickey gave a talk on functional databases. Hickey is well known for creating the Clojure programming language and is currently developing Datomic, which is a functional database. During his talk, Hickey argued that the useful properties of functional languages: data as values and pure functions, are just as useful in the context of databases.

Maven and JRuby Roundup: Maven_gem Brings Maven Libs to RubyGems, GemCutter Inspires JavaGems

by Mirko Stocker on  Dec 18, 2009 1

JRuby's Charles Nutter is making Maven artifacts installable as RubyGems. An alternative to using Maven is JavaGems, built on RubyGems, Bundler and Gemcutter to make it easier to install libraries for Scala, Clojure and other JVM languages. Also, JRuby gets the ability to generate real Java classes.

Clojure 1.1 Adds Transients, Chunked Sequences for Efficiency

by Werner Schuster on  Dec 17, 2009

Clojure 1.1 RC1 is out and cuts the overhead of functional programming with a few new constructs: transients bring controlled mutability for persistent data structures; chunked sequences make lazy sequences more efficient. InfoQ takes a look at what makes these improvements work.

Clojure Roundup: Distribution with Crane, Mathematics with Incanter, Builds with Leiningen 1.0

by Werner Schuster on  Dec 13, 2009

FlightCaster recently open sourced Crane, a tool for distributing and remotely controlling Clojure instances, currently specialized for EC2. Incanter is a Clojure library and tool that makes R-like statistical computations easy with Clojure. Also: the build and dependency management tool Leiningen 1.0 is now available.

Clojars and Leiningen Automate Library and Dependency Management for Clojure

by Werner Schuster on  Nov 19, 2009

Managing libraries and dependencies is tedious. Clojars is a new hosted repository for Clojure libraries inspired by Ruby Gems and Gemcutter. Together with a new build tool, Leiningen, Clojars takes the pain out of library management. InfoQ talked to Alex Osborne about Clojars and how it works.
