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.
I've just update #functionalcafe to Mastodon 2.5.1, there were a vulnerability issue:
Sorry for the little downtime.
@constrict0r Welcome to functional café!
I usually avoid social networks for self advertising, so forgive me.
My company, 7bridges.eu, is a small two people company based in the North of Italy. We provide prototyping, development and training for #clojure projects. If you have an idea for a project or simply want to outsource some code, just leave me a message. Thanks for your time!
