Just found myself handwriting a sum with the + sign on the left. LISP sticks

what are the best places to advertise a clojure(script) job?

crocket03:12:24

@atroche: The best places to advertise a clojure(script)job? I don't know the best, but a good place would be where functional language programmers look for jobs.

crocket03:12:08

Many serious programmers, many of whom use functional programming languages, want to work remotely. https://weworkremotely.com/ http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs/remote http://www.indeed.com/l-Remote-jobs.html https://remoteok.io/ And, the best workers aren't on the job market, though...

crocket03:12:25

The best jobs aren't on the job market, either.

crocket03:12:52

The best jobs are taken by personal introductions and the like.

atroche03:12:18

@crocket: thanks!

crocket03:12:45

If you consider remote work as a viable alternative, then ok. In my experiences, many managers and executives still don't like remote work.

crocket03:12:24

Plus, this place is also a good place for advertising your clojure(script) job. This place is full of clojure(script) programmers.

atroche03:12:31

it's worth trying, at least. in my case it's an extremely small team (I'm the only developer, and the guy funding the project is very low maintenance)

atroche03:12:42

ah, i figured that'd be frowned upon

atroche03:12:18

do people advertise jobs on the mailing list?

crocket03:12:32

I don't think, but look for other places in the clojure(script) community.

crocket03:12:08

Clojure programmers would consider creating a place for clojure jobs.

crocket03:12:28

http://clojure.org/community has a list of conferences, too. If a local clojure conference is held, you could go there.

jaen08:12:59

@atroche: there's also #C05006WDW here

crocket08:12:11

functional jobs

crocket08:12:14

It's explicit

jaen08:12:30

Explicit as in crude or as in specific? If it's the latter then I can see it only as a good thing if you're looking for a functional programmer.

crocket08:12:25

I find it a little humorous.

crocket08:12:51

The jobs are "functional".

crocket08:12:03

Other jobs are imperative.

jaen09:12:00

Well, if you code - say - in assembly it is imperative P ;

jaen09:12:06

But I think I see what you mean.

jaen09:12:30

But if it attracts a certain type of programmer then the website is doing it's job.

Hi, did you read the announcement of Perl 6? And if so, what do you think of it from a language feature perspective?

jaen14:12:35

Any link to the announcement?

sveri14:12:54

Forgot about that one

jaen14:12:22

Yeah, I know of Perl 6, it's been in development for the longest oftimes. I'm asking about the link to the announcement.

sveri14:12:04

Oh, I did not mean a specific announcement, just the fact that it got released finally. I went through some of the features and it looked interesting. Supporting gradual typing, classes, first class functions, immutable data types

jaen14:12:01

Ah, I see.

jaen14:12:33

Well, I guess it's just a milestone decision at this point, I guess; it probably had most of the features roughly working for a while.

jaen14:12:38

I remember thinking junctions were interesting

jaen14:12:48

When I checked it out a year or two ago.

sveri14:12:04

Yea, that's nice too. In clojure I put these values in a set and call contains? on it.

sveri14:12:38

Also that they have a type that can be a string comes handy from time to time

jaen14:12:12

Hmm, I'm not sure if that isn't less expressive - junctions let you test a Cartesian product of options, with Clojure you'd have to write a for comprehension and some/any over that to achieve the same effect, I think.

eggsyntax16:12:47

Might not be too hard to implement junctions in clj with macros. That’s just at a glance, though...
