Ep 041: Why do Clojurians make such a big deal about immutability?

Play Episode

Each week, we answer a different question about Clojure and functional programming.

If you have a question you’d like us to discuss, tweet @clojuredesign, send an email to feedback@clojuredesign.club, or join the #clojuredesign-podcast channel on the Clojurians Slack.
