Once again, our new #clojure hire is productive in a couple of weeks. He came in with no Clojure experience (but some Haskell). Hate to harp on about it, but the idea that you can’t find devs or that Clojure is hard to learn is just rubbish if your company is in a city or you have remote workers.
I was going to announce it a bit later and more properly, but Mastodon received a $70k grant from Samsung NEXT through OpenCollective. I intend to make it available to those who contribute to the project, and have already notified some of the most regular contributors. The way OpenCollective works is that anyone can submit an expense and all transactions are listed transparently. It also holds the money.
As for myself, I intend to continue using Patreon for my own wage/costs.

A shout-out to all people interested in #Clojure and #datascience: we're organizing the community to move Clojure forward in the field and everyone is invited!!!
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/
