Since early 2010, Alex has also been part of a team using Clojure at Revelytix.
Clear and classic
The slides are superb!
Of much wider relevance than the title suggests!
It discusses management of module dependencies within Clojure codebases, which is a problem not just in the large but in the medium as well. A lot of the advice is also good advice for design in general. In particular, it much of it is connected to Stuart's work on the "reloaded" workflow, which allows development without frequent REPL restarts, and which is now illustrated in the jig project template on github
