Persistent Data Structures and Managed References

Posted 16 January 2010 - 07:05 PM

This one is a bit old. It's from October first of last year. I've not watched all of it, but I think some of you might find it interesting and enlightening. Rich usually gives good talks.

Summary
Rich Hickey's presentation is organized around a number of programming concepts: identity, state and values. He explains how to represent composite objects as values and how to deal with change and state, as it is implemented in Clojure.

Here she is: http://www.infoq.com...ate-Rich-Hickey

Rich's talks are always pretty good.


I'll also note that this talk isn't as boring as my topic name made it sound. I encourage people to watch it when they have time, I'm sure you'll find it interesting.

I recommend watching other Clojure videos on the net, too. They're interesting even if you aren't thinking of learning Clojure.

Besides, after watching them, you probably will be want to.
