awesome! been waiting for new Clojure podcasts

@U8A5NMMGD Ideally posts about blogs, podcasts, videos should be posted to the #news-and-articles channel of this slack community, making those posts easier to find. Great to have you back for a 3rd season.

Seems like I have been caught by the Clojurians Police 🚨 Will do Sir! Thanks for letting me know :+1:

practicalli17:02:09

We are very friendly 'police' and trying to make sure the right people can find your content in this fast moving stream of data that is Clojurians Slack as well as finding it on the two archives (zulip and clojurians-log) 😁

I did some timings on the effects of direct function use a vs indirect use #(a). I uploaded the results and scripts to https://github.com/SevereOverfl0w/direct-performance I wanted to know if making code REPL friendly is bad for performance, and if so, how bad?

my usual complaint against (def a b) and friends is loss of metadata, which is why if the pattern is absolutely needed, I'd use Potemkin for the wrapping

dominicm16:02:14

Tbh, in this case you can use a directly for benchmark. I'm trying to reference the notion of passing the function value to another function, eg a Web server

Given that Clojure isn't listed as an option in that survey and needs to be written in, this is a case where the broadest audience possible for the announcement is reasonable. As an Admin, I agree that in general posts about surveys/blogs/podcasts etc do not belong here.

yogthos20:02:21

I think this is a very important survey as SO is very widely used, what would be a better channel to put this in?

seancorfield23:02:24

@U050CBXUZ As far as I'm concerned, this was appropriate for #announcements

yogthos23:02:12

misread your comment initially :)
