Don't worry; by the time it gets out of proposal, it'll be three times as verbose, cover maybe a quarter of the originally intended cases. and have misconstrued 'pattern matching' as 'easier casting'.

I'm not bitter 🙂

So I'm just starting my clojure learning. I'm wondering what are some cool things you all have built using clojure?

jimmy13:04:39

hi guys, is there any good guide regarding naming in clojure ?

jimmy13:04:38

yes it is, I just found this guide https://stuartsierra.com/2016/01/09/how-to-name-clojure-functions . It's good too 😄

dominicm13:04:46

@nxqd the elements of clojure by ztellman is really good on this topic

jimmy13:04:41

gotta level up my naming skill 😄

The government shuts down every year, mostly whenever the president changes.

tbaldridge16:04:35

In 2013 it shutdown for 16 days

tbaldridge16:04:21

and it's a common way for politicians to force things to happen: "pass my budget or you'll be accused of shutting the government down".

tbaldridge16:04:54

(btw, not saying I agree with any of this, but for about 2-3 Presidents running now we've had shutdowns for a week or two every few years).

mobileink20:04:15

tbaldridge: true; it's normalized. the voters don't seem to care much. dunno if that's good or bad. here in illinois we have not had a state budget for several years. not exactly a shutdown, but pretty close.

fellshard20:04:19

The concept that the gov. needs to be 'always-on' is silly, to say the least. We do want them to be able to convene ASAP when time is critical, but unless they're being paid during that shutdown, it turns out it's not all that essential.

fellshard20:04:36

And if the shutdown is due to budget constraints, all the better. Forces accountability for the use of funds and prioritization of legislation.

looks like none during bush

zylox16:04:43

well, bush 2

zylox16:04:58

see, versioning issues in action

also, i wouldn't get too upset over articles written by "Tyler Durden" as that link claims to be
