I'm joining the group because while I love what I've learned about Clojure, Noir and Korma so far (I'm an advanced beginner) I sometimes feel like I'm the only person who even knows what Clojure is. I'm also someone who has done no Java development before, so the learning curve is a bit steeper for me. Perhaps finding some other Clojure folk to trade ideas and commiserate will help me move to the next level.
I'm a web developer in the DC area, currently working primarily in Python, but moving slowly toward more Clojure. I've been writing software since the days of CP/M, in a dozen languages, but Clojure and Python made programming fun again!
