Clojure Conj talk videos

All of the talks at the Conj were recorded, but they're still being edited. The first video came out moments ago, and it just so happens to be Rich Hickey's keynote talk, now known as "Hammock Driven Development": http://clojure.blip.tv/file/4457042/

As new videos come out, I'll post links and descriptions in this thread. If you watch any video from the Conj, watch the Rich Hickey talk above. It's not really Clojure-specific at all, and it's very enlightening. I should know, I was there! :P

I do not really know much about Clojure, still relatively new to programming but that was a great video to watch, very inspiring

A new Clojure Conj video was just released. This one is by Luke Vanderhart and is about the zipper data structure and Clojure's implementation of it:

Tom Faulhaber's Conj talk was just released: http://clojure.blip.tv/file/4521022/

Description:

Quote

Lisp, Functional Programming, and the State of Flow

Since the beginning of computer science, many programmers have been driven by a desire to feel a oneness with the essentially abstract processes on which they're working. In no area has this been more pronounced than symbolic computation and AI. Hackers working through the night, night after night, to find that connection with information and abstraction were legendary from Cambridge to Palo Alto throughout the 60's and 70's and entered the mainstream consciousness in movies such as The Matrix in the Internet generation.

It should come as no surprise then that the ideas presented by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi in Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (and a very famous 2004 TED presentation) found an excited audience among the Hacker News crowd. Csikszentmihalyi describes (and validates) a condition that many of us have sought out and enjoyed for many years.

In this talk, we will explore how particular programming concepts, especially those found in Lisp and functional languages, seem to enhance the quality of flow we achieve while programming. Many Clojure programmers have described the enjoyment they find programming in Clojure. I want to investigate that and see why it's important to work in a language that makes programming fun.

All of the Conj talks that *could* be produced have been produced: http://clojure.com/b...lks-all-up.html

I'd appreciate it if a mod could move this to Functional Programming (where I should have put it in the first place) so that it is in my domain and I can edit it a bit to make it pretty.
