Hi all, I was invited to give a talk this week - I refreshed & updated a talk I did in 2013 that I'd be happy to offer up to the Clojure meetup if folks are interested:

The Patterns You Can't {See,Refactor}.

There are patterns in our software that sit right in the middle of our blind spot.  We have many powerful tools for abstraction and refactoring our programming languages - though I believe Lisp Macros are a tool that allows us to abstract above limits that exist in most programming languages.  In the time we have together I hope to convince you that Lisp Macros represent an unique, powerful tool and that learning more about them will improve us as programmers.

Thanks for the link to the slides. Looked them over. Looks very comprehensive. If you're up for presenting at the next meetup (Nov 13) you're on!
