I’m a generalist with 15 years professional experience and engineering/computer science degrees. Full-stack Ruby, ReasonML most recently with a fair bit of Rust on the side.

Looking for a role in Melbourne AU or remote friendly. Would love to work a bit lower down the stack, systems level, embedded, OS, networking for example. Want to work for a business that values quality and correctness, not just deadlines and piling on technical debt.

Pls boost for reach 🙏

Hi everyone, does any of you have experience with ? Would you recommend it for a work laptop?

I'm asking cause I read it's sitll in beta.

I'm trying to write a chess engine in in these holidays, it's something I always wanted to do. The problem is I'm lazy as f**k... 😴

I named it Vinnik in honor of Mikhail Botvinnik, a chess world champion and a pioneer of computer chess.

Since you might have lost it I recently published a thorough tutorial to doing machine learning in #Clojure with #XGBoost rdisorder.eu/2018/12/03/machin

Ok, I'm an idiot, is already up-to-date to v2.6.1.
Sorry for the false alarm... :/

Hello functional folks, I'm going to update to v2.6.1 today, so probably there will be some downtime. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi all, sorry I didn't warned you first, but I've just upgraded to v2.6.1.

Command-line apps with #Clojure and GraalVM: 300x better start-up times: astrecipes.net/blog/2018/07/20

Also recommend taking a look at the lein-native-image plugin that makes compiling for Graal painless


Was using Incanter for #clojure #datascience yesterday and really impressed. Usability is significantly better compared to pandas and matplotlib - I was able to get a lot more done with less referring to docs and examples.

I think this is partly because Incanter plays nicely with Clojure core abstractions, partly because the REPL experience is better and partly because it’s a more expressive language anyway. Looking forward to using it more.
