Grab a coffee and join AND Digital for Elevenses! 

For over 20 years, JavaScript, Java and C have topped the list of most popular programming languages, however, there are other alternatives available to us, and it’s worth considering whether we should be using them in some ecosystems.

In this last of a five-part series, we’ll be looking at Clojure: a dialect of Lisp that shares the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system. Clojure is predominantly a functional programming language. It features a rich set of immutable, persistent data structures and, similarly to Scala and Kotlin, runs entirely on the Java Virtual Machine.

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • A brief history of Clojure

  • Clojure use cases

  • Features of the language

  • A live demo

  • Q&A

 

Shahid is Product Developer AND Explorer at AND Digital. He has more than 15 years of experience working in digital teams across various industries, and has used C#, Java and JavaScript for many years. He has a keen interest in new technologies and languages.

In our collective new normal of working from home, we’ve noticed ourselves just how easy it is to lose track of time and find yourself working without sufficient breaks. Without these, we all know how fast productivity, focus and wellbeing can dwindle.

So, to help break up your day, we’ve launched AND Elevenses: snappy, 45-minute live webinar sessions where you can learn new skills, network with others and take some time out from your working day.

If you've missed an event, don't worry. You can watch recordings here from each Elevenses session we run.
