Feedback on Learning Clojure: comparing with Java streams

Coming from a Java background, I'm currently trying to learn the Clojure programming language, with the help of online resources and mentorship. Some weeks ago, I tried to wire things together by trying to find equivalent methods to those available in Java streams. While I managed to get things working, writing working code and writing idiomatic code are two very different things. I was fortunate to have a good degree of feedback from different sources: Hacker News, Reddit and on this very blog.

Learning Clojure: the arrow and doto macros

For me, learning a new language is like getting into the sea: one toe at a time. Last week was the occasion to get familiar with the spec library. This week, we will have a look at some powerful macros. The problem When you’re not used to Clojure, parentheses may sometimes impair the readability of code. (- 25 (+ 5 (* 3 (- 5 (/ 12 4))))) The Kotlin equivalent of the above snippet would be: 25 - (5 + (3 * (5 - (12 / 4)))) Obviously, it’s related neither to Clojure nor

Learning Clojure: coping with dynamic typing

My new position requires me to get familiar with the Clojure language. In intend to document what I learn in a series of posts, to serve as my personal reference notes. As a side-effect, I hope it will also be beneficial to others who want to take the same path. There are already a multitude of great tutorials available: hence, each post will focus on a specific theme, that is specific to Clojure considering that most of my experience comes from OOP. As a newcomer to Clojure, a big issue of min

Decoding Clojure code, getting your feet wet

Recently, I had some some fun writing functional Kotlin to solve the FizzBuzz test. I asked for some feedback, and one of the answer I received was in Clojure: In Clojure there's the classic way, with condp and mod. There's also another way using cycle that I saw some years ago. The range and the 2 cycles will generate the fizz & buzz, the rest just decides what to print.Will be easier for you with syntax highlighting -> screenshots— Alexandre Gri
