1 # Clojure: Designed for Performance
2
3 Yesterday I blogged about my LCA talk [[Crowdsourcing Upstream Refactoring|/tmarble/posts/Crowdsourcing_Upstream_Refactoring]].
4 Today I gave my a talk on Clojure and performance at [Linux Conf Australia 2013][lca].

10 I mixed giving an overview of why I think Clojure offers the advantages
11 of Common Lisp and Java without the disadvantages of either along with
12 live coding on the REPL. There were several great questions and I am really
13 pleased that many delegates told me that the were going to give
14 Clojure a close look!

16 Later this evening we have the Emacs BOF and I know I'll find
17 a number of friendly eLisp hackers.

19 If you have a chance to attend LCA I would highly recommended it...
20 This is among the best organized conferences I've attended
21 and comprises a fantastic group of enthusiastic contributors.

23 Below you will find links to the presentation.  Very soon the video
24 of this talks (and all the talks) will be available.
