My name is Lance Campbell.
I have spent half my career as a pharmacist and half as a software developer.
I have been frustrated by the healthcare industry, and software development industry, both, for a variety of not completely orthogonal reasons.
About seven years ago, I stumbled upon the Harold and Gerald MIT SICP lectures and proceeded to watch and rewatch and rewatch and rewatch them because it was the first time I ever heard people commiserating with my software development frustrations and offering potential, practical solutions.
Since then, I have been a LISP dabbler and a Clojure lurker. My open source contributions have been primarily been in Adobe Brackets.
At the end of April, 2019, I will be turning fifty. My big present to myself is I am retiring early because of good financial planning and because I am tired of developing software for other people instead of myself. I am looking to dive into Clojure and at least one solid, useful Clojure open source project, part- to full-time.
Asking for suggestions for good open source clojure projects that are valuable to the community so I contribute value while I learn.
