Uncle Bob Martin Presents: Clojure, up-close and personal: The Orbit Kata.


In this session you will learn Clojure by following along with Uncle Bob, step by step, and test-case by test-case, through the design of a simple Swing/Clojure orbital simulator app. Along the way you'll learn the value of Functional Programming, how (and why!) to design applications that use it, and why Clojure is the next important language that you should master. This session will be extremely challenging! Plan on requiring an hour or so of down-time to allow your neuronal excitation to exponentially decay to safe levels.

    Great presentation. Lots of energy and humor supporting an interesting topic. I'd be interested in hearing more details about Clojure's concurrency support in future talks.
