Clojure is wonderful new language for the JVM that's really making waves: a functional Lisp dialect with full interoperation with Java, and a suite of excellent concurrency utilities ... but it's more than that.
Clojure is a highly expressive and highly adaptable language that allows you to focus on your craft in a way traditional languages such as Java and C# do not. In this session, we'll introduce the language and its core utilities and then introduce the fundamental concepts of functional programming as they apply to Clojure. Clojure has been described as a "high level language beamed back from the near future" ... come see what your future may hold, and why you're really going to like it!
