The Best of Clojure/west 2016

I’ve recently decided to give Clojure another try and, as a part of my wanderings, watched talks from Clojure/west 2016. Clojure/west is the biggest Clojure conference in the western United States and all about this language, as you may guess.

As usual, I am publishing the talks, which I liked the most. Hope you’ll enjoy these too. Disclaimer: your experience may vary.

This is a monthly “newsletter”, containing a list of what I enjoyed the most last month. Whether it was a full length movie, short film, music album or book or even painting.

How to Be Productive With Almost Any Text Editor

На русском

What makes us productive when working with code in the editor? Every day, there is a new shining plugin, that allows us to do something useful by pressing only 2 keystrokes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not against plugins. Hell, I have at least 40 of them (https://git.io/vrg64).

But, are all of them equally useful? I am certain that some tricks outperform others in terms of productivity (20% results in 80% boost). These could be features, built into the editor. You just don’t know about them. Here, I’ve tried to collect the most important ones, which don’t require you to read a pile of docs and much time to learn.
