• My #Clojure #Hadoop lib version 1.1.0 (here, via @stuartsierra) -- List of changes here. This fixes some missing pieces in the first release, and adds some more Hadoop configuration options. Download it here.
  • Face recognition with clojure and OpenCV. Sweet! (here, via @jolby) -- OpenCV is a computer vision library. Processing, a programming language to manipulate and generate images,┬áhas a library that wraps OpenCV so it can be called from Java. This article shows how to integrate OpenCV into Clojure via Processing. This I call a fun project!
  • #clojure and #jclouds via #crane: coming soon to a theater near you (via @jclouds) -- JClouds is a framework that helps you get started in the cloud with Java apps and crane is a clojure-based solution for provisioning servers in EC2 and configuring Hadoop clousters. So we'll see what comes out of it!
  • Why macros are cool (here, via @kotarak) -- The title is self-explanatory, but this article also touches on an issue that more and more clojurians are finding in the field. AOT compiled code that won't run with newer versions of Clojure.
  • news about the awaited book from @fogus and @chouser (here, via @jneira) -- You can't buy the MEAP version of "The Joy of Clojure" yet, but the site at Manning's is up and so is also the book's own site: joyofclojure.com
