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 #Guix? 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 #Clojure 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 https://www.rdisorder.eu/2018/12/03/machine-learning-clojure-xgboost/
This is quite scary, beware.

Ok, I'm an idiot, #functionalcafe is already up-to-date to v2.6.1.
Sorry for the false alarm... :/
Command-line apps with #Clojure and GraalVM: 300x better start-up times: https://www.astrecipes.net/blog/2018/07/20/cmd-line-apps-with-clojure-and-graalvm/
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.
functional.cafe is an instance for people interested in functional programming and languages.
