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

95: Cornucopias and COVID

Tuesday, 14 April 2020


My team and I were laid off today due to the pandemic. If you’re looking for senior engineers (Clojure or otherwise), then talk to Angus Fletcher, Ian Bishop, Cody Canning, or myself.

That means I’m now looking for a new remote job. I live in New Zealand but work on Pacific Time to sync up with engineering teams in USA and Canada. I have experience using Clojure and ClojureScript, but I’m also open to other languages. You can see my GitHub profile, LinkedIn, and personal site.

If you think I or one of my colleagues could be a good addition to your team, reply to this email and get in touch!

Recent Developments.



I’ve been enjoying this new meme of Ghanan dancing pallbearers.

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, Nubank, JUXT, Metosin, Adgoji, and Nextjournal) 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.
