Gamifying - parallels to REPL driven development


#1

Hi, just saw this presentation on youtube about gamifying tasks and it reminded me a lot of what I feel is great about REPL driven development in Clojure:

Just wanted to share this :slight_smile:, have fun!


#2

I see your point! Exploring some API endpoint is actually fun in Clojure. Not so much with Java.


#3

Yes, this is indeed often real fun with a clojure repl.

I would extend this to exploring any unknown domain, like coding/learning from complex customer specs (I just realized this is essentially what Rich says in his talk “Effective Programs” :slight_smile: ).
