So I am a firm believer in trying to learn a new computer language each year and so this year I am trying Clojure. And trying is probably the best I can do.
The last time I used a Lisp was back at University and rarely got above trivial. So I have come to it almost fresh. I have to say the concepts are fine and I like the idea of functional programming and the immutability but as soon as it gets away from the elementary level I struggle to get my head around it all.
So at the moment I am the ignorant apprentice waiting for the “ah ah” moment of Clojure enlightenment. I am yet to get to the despondent stage where I give up but feel it is not too far away.
