What makes you interested in Clojure or in the group in general?

I'm trying to add functional features to my custom domain-specific language programming platform and am interested in deep-diving into the internals of other language implementations. My platform is built on top of a custom virtual machine inspired by Charles Moore's Forth language and modeled after one of his hardware Forth "Minimal Instruction Set Computer" processors. My platform supports programming in a fairly wide range of abstraction levels, ranging from high-level domain-specific vocabularies all the way down to low-level Intel assembly language. Leveraging the concatenative and point-free nature of a Forth-inspired stack-based machine, I am currently working on adding Functional features found in other such languages like Joy, Cat and Factor. Am interested in how Clojure is implemented and what constructs it provides.

What are you hoping to get from the Clojadelphia?

A better understanding of Clojure and functional languages in general.

Anything you hope to add to group?

Input from my experiences with some of the practical challenges I am grappling with, including language feature design, optimizing compiler construction, Visual Studio (and other IDE) integration, visual modeling and graph processing, etc.


Developer working on a custom domain-specific language modeling platform designed to support the creation of hybrid visual/textual domain specific languages. Interested in a variety of functional languages including Haskell, Scheme, ML and F#.
