Clojure for Beginners Part 2: Seqs and Lists
This is the 2nd in a series of talks about Clojure for beginners. This time it is all about Clojure's favorite way of looking at the world, the Seq. Seqs are everything to Clojure: No matter if you are dealing with lists or arrays or maps or files or regular expressions or even Clojure code itself, if you are doing it in Clojure then you are doing it with a seq.
In this talk I'll start by looking at where the idea of the seq came and then turn to the incredibly rich seq API built right into Clojure.
Calling Clojure from Java
Speaker: Bryan Weber
From Bryan: "I could do a presentation (and live coding session) on calling Clojure from Java. We all know it works well in the other direction, but let's explore what calling a Clojure library from Java looks like!"
Don't forget to bring your laptop for some live coding.
