A Dry Spell, Some New Books

It's been awhile, readers. Sometimes things get so busy that finding the time to write a few sentences seems like more than I can afford! Here's a few quick points:

Joy of Clojure 2e: I reviewed this while it was still in early release format. It looks like a pretty solid book. I feel like I would've gotten more out of it if I had more experience with the JVM platform and Lisps overall.


  • ZeroMQ, O'Reilly Media: It looks like a very promising read. The technology has been around for awhile, and I've seen it come up more than once in casual technical discussion. I grabbed a copy of the book and I'll be reading up on it soon.
  • Clojure Programming, O'Reilly Media: Lisps continue to elude me, and I thought I'd dive in with this O'Reilly publication. Having been published very recently, and having received rather high reviews, I'm excited to see what this will teach me, especially with how meta-programmable I've heard Lisps can be.
'til next time - happy reading!
