Clojurers to Follow

27 October 2014

I follow all these Clojurers (Clojurians? Clojurists? Clojeoisie?) because their tweets are interesting and useful. If you're into Clojure, then I'm sure you'll want to follow them, too:

Bridget Hillyer (@BridgetHiller)
Bridget is one of the main forces behind ClojureBridge, an organization which teaches free Clojure workshops to women. She's also one of the coolest people I know, and I'm proud to call her a friend!

Alan Dipert (@alandipert)
Alan is the smartest person I know, and I'm proud to call him a friend, too. He's also super funny and nice, which seems unfair to me. Everything he writes will learn you good. I haven't discussed this with my wife yet, but I plan on naming my firstborn Dipert in his honor.

Eric Normand (@ericnormand)
Eric runs the Clojure Gazette and LispCast. He's also a friendly guy who's passionate about teaching Clojure.

Carin Meier (@gigasquid)
Carin has written many excellent articles and given many excellent talks on Clojure, specifically on using it to dominate the world with robots.

Bozhidar Batsov (@bbatsov)
Bozhidar is my Emacs hero! He maintains CIDER and writes about Emacs. I don't understand how he manages to accomplish so much. My guess, though, is that he's written an AI clone of himself in elisp.

Fogus (@fogus)
Fogus goes by one name, which is completely badass. I really enjoy his tweets!

David Nolen (@swannodette)
I have no idea what a swannodette is, but good god David knows all the cool stuff. How does he do it?

Alex Miller (@puredanger) Alex is the Clojure Community Czar. Follow him to hear about Clojure events and developments. Tweet him about all your stacktrace woes.

Rich Hickey (@richhickey) Rich Hickey created a programming language called Clojure. It's pretty good!

That's it for now! If there's anyone you'd like me to add, please let me know! I'm @nonrecursive.
