@jumar Do you mind if I ask where you are in your journey? Is 4clojure too easy or are you frustrated by it's focus on discrete math?


@ I've been more seriously involved in Clojure for the past 2 years. For the past year, I've been working with Clojure full-time. I did a bunch of 4clojure exercises (also before) but, to be honest, I'm far from completing them all (it's been a while since I did the last one) - so I don't feel that all of them are too easy (I'm actually not that good in algorithmic exercises, in general). I'm not really frustrated, I just don't think that it's something that can add significant value to my Clojure proficiency. What I think would be the best is a (reasonably) challenging personal project and a high-quality feedback from an expert but that's quite hard to embark on for me now (I can't really decide what to work on and I don't have any real expert willing to provide feedback - maybe the first point is actually more significant). Taking that into account and the fact that I wanted to read Joy of Clojure for a really long time (and that it's also a book that I heard mentioned a lot) I just feel like I'd love to finally do it 🙂


This was such a great idea! Just 3 days in and this challenge has already gone collab. With the PR from @klaus.azesberger the Clojure CLI training app is now working perfectly so now I can work on adding more problems to it, or other features and stuff. Merged some tweaks to to make it easier for people to get a Clojure static site running on Gitlab Pages with Cryogen. And of course, another Just Juxt!


Day4: continued with exercism puzzles (solved 3 and left 1 unfinished for today). the puzzles i solved today were definitely not a real challenge, but still were practice.


I have not tried exercism yet. Pros? Cons?


only did the first few tasks, but here are my pros/cons: Pros: • idea of mentored progression is nice as it motivates and keeps you stick to it • cli client makes it ez to setup a lein project so one would already use a real project environment use real tests and stuff instead of just typing in a "klipse"-ish browser window. • upvote/comments for published solutions is nice, though sorting would be even nicer at this would encourage ppl to vote and look at least at the top 5 solutions from other devs. mb something like "now vote on at least 3 other solutions to get some internet points" and public visibility which solutions you upvoted would even improve this more. cons: • puzzles are not clojure specific. imho 4clj is way better to learn clj. • cli client is nice in some way but i'd rather get guided to perform similar with clojure code.


I have been thinking of going back and finishing last year's AdventOfCode. That had some nice chewy problems.


yeah, thought of that too as I'd like to compete this year.


100 Days of Advent? ;D


Day for I created a really simple mock-data generator. I dont think you could create anything simpler really. If you pass it a float value, then a random float is returned. Anything else passed as an argument and an Integer is returned (unless something blows up which I havent tested).
