Introduction to Clojure

Clojure is a dynamic programming language that targets the Java Virtual Machine (and the CLR ). It is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Every feature supported by Clojure is supported at runtime. Clojure provides easy access to the Java frameworks, with optional type hints and type inference, to ensure that calls to Java can avoid reflection.

Meeting starts at 5:30PM (networking, food, drink), with the discussion beginning at 6:00PM.

    LISP meets the JVM - what a concept! A winning combination. It'd be cool to see Dr. McCarthy (inventor of LISP) and Dr. Gosling (inventor of Java) chat about Clojure :-) Two incredible computer scientists - old school and new age. Excellent presentation. Would like to see part 2 in the near future :-)

    The speaker was very knowledgeable about the language implementation and reasons for it's implementation. Excellent job!
