@potetm: totally made much more sense, even just understanding how def’ing a connection was the source of the hangup was enough to get me to the next stage.

Hi Everyone! Is there an idiomatic alternative to (let [foo (fn-to-get-foo args)] (if foo (do-this-with foo) (do-something-else))) ? .... basically I want to do something with foo but it might not exist...

fappy18:12:31

Something like when, but it binds foo for use in the body so I don't have to get it a second time

fappy18:12:32

yes, thank you!

Hi all! Using clojure to solve a Code Wars problem. Who know what’s next for my clojure journey? 😄

Do you want more practice?

@jeff.engebretsen: Sure! simple_smile

@kopasetik: I saw you were considering Joy of Clojure. It's a really great book, my favorite of the ~4 I've read, but it may not be the best choice for a first Clojure book, unless you tend to prefer really dense resources or have plenty of FP and/or Lisp experience. As @jeff.engebretsen says, ...Brave... is a nice starting point, if you're OK with a humorous approach.
