Week 46: What did you learn this week?

What Clojure, programming, or life skill did you learn this week?

A rushing week of work… and:

Watched a video about the Shenandoah GC that’s coming in the new OpenJDK, it’s very in depth and also helps understanding existing GC’s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCeHkcwfF9Q
The speaker also replied a bunch in the reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/java/comments/7de6v8/

Clojure related:

  • Learned a bit about working with lazy sequences.
  • Played around with Gorilla REPL. I use Jupyter notebook every day and I’m a huge fan of it, but it would be cool to do the stuff I do in Python with Clojure. Gorilla worked smoothly for simple examples, but the build in plotting library is bare bones compared to Python’s matplotlib or bokeh. Going to look into lein-jupyter instead because it looks like I might be able to still run Python and Clojure side by side. (i think???)
