Ep 042: What does it mean to be 'data-oriented'?

We merge together different aspects of Clojure's data orientation and specify which of those help make development more pleasant.

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

We cover several practical side effects of immutability and why we've become such big fans of data that doesn't let us down.

Ep 040: Should I use lein, boot, or tools.deps?

We assemble a list of build tool characteristics and talk about how each tool stacks up before giving our recommendations.

Ep 039: Why use Clojure over another functional language?

We examine the different categories of functional programming languages and distill out what differentiates Clojure and why we prefer it.

Ep 038: How do I convince my coworkers to use Clojure?

We recall our own experiences evangelizing Clojure and give practical advice from the trenches.

Ep 037: What Advice Would You Give to Someone Getting Started With Clojure?

We trade off giving practical tips for intrepid learners reminisce about our own paths into Clojure.

Ep 036: Why Do You Recommend Clojure?

We take turns sharing our favorite reasons, and we can't help but have fun riffing on how enjoyable Clojure is to use.

Ep 035: Lifted Learnings
