A weekly newsletter and podcast diving into Clojure programs and libraries by Daniel Compton.

88: Tempting fate, lots of journals, and JIRA!

Saturday, 15 June 2019


Since the last newsletter I’ve been over to America for work, and back home again. Things have been pretty busy with work, travel, family, e.t.c. but life is finally settling down a little bit. While I was in America I got to see a bunch of Clojure folk in San Francisco, New York, and even Chicago after weather stranded me there overnight. It was really great to meet so many people that I’d only interacted with online before, everyone I met was really welcoming and friendly.

Falcon (my employer) has two job openings, a Web Development Engineer (mostly front-end), and a Senior Software Engineer (mostly backend). If you’d like to work in an empathetic, inclusive, fast growing team that uses Clojure, please look at applying. We’re looking to hire people remotely (or in the Bay Area) who can work with a significant overlap in the Pacific time zone.

Let me know if you have any questions.


Libraries & Books.

People are worried about Types. ?



Recent Developments.



I’m Daniel Compton. I maintain public Maven repositories at Clojars, private ones at Deps, and help fund OSS Clojure projects (along with tons of generous members like Pitch, JUXT, Metosin, Adgoji, and Funding Circle) at Clojurists Together. If you’ve enjoyed reading this, tell your friends to sign up at therepl.net, or post a link in your company chatroom. If you’ve seen (or published) a blog post, library, or anything else Clojure/JVM related please reply to this to let me know about it.

If you’d like to support the work that I’m doing, consider signing up for a trial of Deps, a private, hosted, Maven Repository service that I run.
