@gjnoonan: really? I would have thought Hiccup was a hard sell to designers? Maybe we can have a more in depth (off-line) discussion about how you did that and the minutia of what thye took from it.

gjnoonan08:10:17

@agile_geek: That would be a good discussion to have. I was passionate about “everything is data” maybe that helped

Hi, would anybody recommend the book "clojure for the brave and true",for learning ??? java programmer here 😄 (ESL,sorry in advance)

colin.yates14:10:36

@kiquetal: I would.

colin.yates14:10:47

colin.yates14:10:17

(the last one is the free website behind the book)

colin.yates14:10:34

also, Brian Marick’s FPOO book is worth a read coming from OO.

kiquetal14:10:52

Thanks @colin.yates ,i want to buy another book, before read "the joy of clojure" and hope this book use the new version of clojure

colin.yates14:10:37

to be honest, there are so many good resources it is hard to go wrong.

roberto14:10:37

Living Clojure is also good for beginners

chris14:10:56

brave and true is great

gjnoonan16:10:50

Ordered Brave and true in May, after many changes in delivery date it is now saying "Arriving 29 Oct - 18 Nov” sigh

gjnoonan16:10:07

however, I have read the site, and love the authors writing style. Great stuff

akiva16:10:56

It’s fantastic, yes.

ianjones17:10:09

I guess @alexmiller co-wrote it 😛

colin.yates17:10:58

@ianjones: I went through it quite quickly. It is good, but I don’t think it is a beginner book.

colin.yates17:10:22

It isn’t overly advanced, but it is more ‘how do I use Clojure to solve real problems’ rather than ‘how do I learn Clojure'

alexmiller17:10:59

I approve of that description :)

ianjones17:10:16

ahh good to know simple_smile

colin.yates17:10:19

@alexmiller: (phew) simple_smile

ianjones17:10:21

I think ill finish brave clojure first 😉

lucaska18:10:16

I ordered Brave and True too, I hope it’s not delayed. Damn.

ianjones18:10:18

Yeah, I ordered it in march. Im excited to get a physical copy

ianjones18:10:25

lucaska19:10:29
