Avoid the Churn / Study the Great Traditions

This is a blog post that had been sitting in my drafts for a while, I’m glad I finally polished it up enough to get it out. I wrote it originally in a Hong Kong McDonalds, jet lagged and sleep deprived. Make of that what you will :slight_smile:

It’s not really about Clojure, but somehow these principles apply to Clojure quite well, so they explain to some extent why I like this language and community so much.

Nice post! It lead me on to your post about goog.log and glögi, which I liked as well. :slightly_smiling_face::+1:

Thanks for the article, I enjoyed reading it.

I sometimes get the feeling that learning Clojure is about discovering how things should be, from some underlying truth. From some place calm.


I’m also interested reading more along these lines. For anyone else, I’d point to The Art of Unix Programming, which is available in full online.
