The Curious Clojurist with Neal Ford

Why should you learn Clojure now? It’s the coolest new language on the JVM. What makes it so cool? It’s a dynamically typed, functional Lisp that offers sophisticated capabilities like software transactional memory. Why should I learn it? Lisp is the most powerful style of programming language possible. These are the opinions of Thoughtworker Neil Ford and he’ll tell you why Clojure is elevated above other JVM languages.
