 Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, November 13th from 7:00
 to 9:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church.

 Rich Hickey Presents: Clojure - A Dynamic Programming Language for the

     Clojure is a dynamic programming language that targets the
     Java Virtual Machine. It combines the approachability and
     interactive development of a scripting language with an
     efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded
     Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM
     bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Every feature
     supported by Clojure is supported at runtime. It provides
     easy access to the Java frameworks, with optional type hints
     and type inference, to ensure that calls to Java can avoid
     Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the
     code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system. But
     Clojure is predominantly a functional programming language
     and features a rich set of immutable, persistent data
     structures. When mutable state is needed, Clojure offers a
     software transactional memory system that ensures clean,
     correct, multithreaded designs.

 Rich is the author of the Lisp-related projects jFli, Foil and
 Lisplets.  He has over 20 years experience developing sophisticated
 scheduling, automation and analysis systems in a variety of programming
