Uncle Bob Martin discovered Clojure

Uncle Bob Martin discovered Clojure fairly recently and really, really likes it. Having had the privilege to see him speak at various SD West conferences back when they still were a thing, I wasn’t surprised by this. Anyway, do yourself a favour and spend a few minutes reading the article. It’s worth your time.

I also strongly agree with him that reading Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs is very much worth the effort. It is a very well written book, especially as computer science textbooks go. It’s not going to land you a new job with the latest hotness in technology, but it will help you improve your knowledge of computer science fundamentals. Those fundamentals are allow you to build a long term career and going from an “XX programmer” to a well rounded software engineer.
