I Working on a Scheme to C compiler in Lisp. Check it out and give me some feedback please if you can https://github.com/Jobhdez/scheme-to-c

where do folks find the best Clojure engineers to recruit for new innovations and open source projects?

seancorfield16:05:48

Perhaps better in #jobs-discuss?

^ This engineer is pretty good

Not sure, but this job board might be popular given the book's popularity: https://jobs.braveclojure.com/

The question seems interesting as it has a twist, right? You're not simply hiring but also hiring "for open source projects" if I'm not mistaken?

Some simple constructs can be frustratingly hard to reverse-engineer. For example, *(Noe\''REPLY=$RANDOM'\') ZSH glob basically means "list files randomly". If you don't know that... well, good lucking figuring that out - you'd have to read a whole lot of documentation before piecing it all together. And https://explainshell.com/ won't help you here. I'm now reading some cl-format recipes and oh boy would it not be fun to try and understand someone else's code that relies heavily on it. I guess it's the same thing with RegEx and I'm just used to them enough to understand them or to know what to look for. And there's invaluable https://regex101.com/ I've also been told that learning APL is worth it, but looking at its source code examples makes me squint real hard. This post is basically just a rant, but I wish there was a universal way to figure out what any of such opaque strings means, given the right context. Similar to how we have units, in a way:

$ units 5kg lbs
	* 11.023113
	/ 0.090718474

Hm... there could be a search engine for these blobs 😄
