- West African #Clojure learner turns to #Arduino – touching blog post
(via @kumarshantanu) —
We don’t get to report touching stories like this very often. Only tangentially related to clojure, this post is about an individual that decided to setup an Arduino store in West Africa, with the goal of getting more kids to interact and learn with electronics. The relationship with Clojure is that the author discovered Arduino while learning Clojure.
- I'm watching @otfrom 's talk "Practical Magic - Clojure for Data Scientists"

Data Science with Incanter and Clojure. There is a longer talk from the same author on the same topic.
- New #clojure reducers library
(via @richhickey) —
Rich Hickey introduces this new ‘reducer’ library that decomplects (ha! I need to create a new blog called ‘decomplected’) the functionality of operating over a collection, only to rebuild the functionality back in a way that is both faster and more flexible. It also lets you skip paying the price of lazyness when you don’t need it. Finally, parallel execution when possible via Java’s fork/join and other goodies that only RH can think of. There is a related Hacker News thread.
