Hello All 🙂

maleghast09:09:06

@mccraigmccraig - I read in your Juxt interview that you were getting into Lux… What’s the learning curve like? (Full disclosure, I am trying to learn Elixir, don’t really have the spare time, but looked at Lux and thought, this would be awesome; oh I don’t have time… 😞 )

mccraigmccraig09:09:19

difficult to say @maleghast - if you know a lisp & haskell already it may be quite short. it’s definitely awesome though

maleghast09:09:50

Thanks @mccraigmccraig - I was wondering if it would help me grok Haskell, 'cos I know Clojure, but if getting into Lux would be easier knowing a Lisp AND Haskell already then I have my answer :-) One day... ;-)

mccraigmccraig09:09:55

it’s not particularly haskell - just all the monad stuff. if you grokked lux i think it would def help you grok haskell

maleghast09:09:20

Oh cool; even better!

mccraigmccraig09:09:58

once you’ve made sense of lux’s approach to macros though - it’s a real eye-opener

maleghast10:09:54

OK, you’ve sold me - I will make some time, soon, i.e. before the e/o Oct…

mccraigmccraig10:09:33

feel free to badger me when you have questions @maleghast

Thanks very much @mccraigmccraig
