Join New Orleans Functional Programming (NoFUN) and Tech Talent South for our Clojure Workshop!

Functional programming is an exciting programming style that helps distributed programming like we find on typical web and mobile applications. It is gaining popularity because of the growth of the web, adoption by large companies, and an increasing pool of jobs. Clojure is a functional programming language created by Rich Hickey. It traces its roots to the Lisp family of languages. Clojure encourages an interactive programming style where you modify a live development system, so it is great for exploring ideas. At the same time, it’s incredibly stable and scales well to multiple cores. Clojure is used by many Fortune 50 companies, from Amazon, Apple, and PayPal, to eBay, CapitalOne, and Facebook. Clojure salaries are among the highest in the industry.
