What interests you in Lisp

The power of brackets, immutability.

Have you programmed in any Lisp based language before?

I have spent the last month or so working on an internal app for my org written in CLJS, utilizing Om, React and Sablono. I have been really enjoying the experience and would like to explore CLJ.

Strong typing or dynamic typing?

I don't actually have enough experience to answer this.

Have you heard of Multi-methods?


Relational, Object Oriented, Graph, Network, Hierarchical databases. Which is your favorite and why?

I don't have enough experience to answer this either. My experience with SQL style languages was never that much fun. While its nice to have a schema, I have spent the last few years with Mongo and generally prefer its ease of use, despite its weaknesses.


New to Clojure and Austin, looking to explore both.
