What Clojure, programming, or life skill did you learn this week?
A rushing week of work… and:
- heard that shadow-cljs has support for bootstrapped-cljs, I gave it a spin. not mature but interesting to try: https://twitter.com/jiyinyiyong/status/930843988013154304
- some tips on equality in Clojure '(1 2) equals [1 2]?
- shared informations with some friends about bookshops in Shanghai, might be useful later.
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/
- 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???)
