What we're about

About

This is a group for anyone interested in Clojure, ClojureScript & Functional Programming. All skill levels are welcome.

The goal of the group is to form a community and have frequent talks, hands-on sessions and discussions around Clojure.

What is Clojure?

Clojure is a functional programming language in the Lisp dialect that runs on JVM.

Why Clojure?

Being LISP it comes up with promises of making you productive. (An article (http://www.paulgraham.com/avg.html) on how LISP was used to beat the competitors in the market).

Being a JVM targetted language, it inherits an ocean of library and platform support from Java world.

Being functional comes with a set of promises of like better concurrency support, easy to reason programs etc. (An interesting read (http://sriku.org/blog/2019/03/07/a-hypothetical-conversation-with-an-imperative-programmer/) of a hypothetical conversation between Imperative and functional programmer)

With the support of ClojureScript, you can do browser programming. With Clojure CLR you can program for .NET. With Clojure, you can do typical backend programming.

So is Clojure the Silver bullet?

Few questions don't have straight forward answers. Join us the journey of exploration, and find it out for yourself.
