    We just released to-jdbc-uri 0.5.0 with support for URL parameters. Courtesy of Joe Kutner. I’d like to note, sometimes I hear that the Clojure community doesn’t care about testing, but to-jdbc-uri has a very complete testing suite and so far, this and other contributions came fully tested.

    How I found one of the earliest browsers in history

    Yesterday, the web celebrated its 25th birthday and to join in, I have a little story. A couple of years ago I found a NeXTcube.

    Review of Clojure Exchange 2015 London

    I recently attended Clojure Exchange 2015 London, the conference organized by Skills Matter for Clojurians. Like many other attendees I was impressed by the quality of the talks and as a presenter, I was particularly pleased that only a few hours later my presentation, What is a Macro?, was already published, in video form, for everybody […]

    A browser in your screensaver is a square peg in a round hole

    This blog post was originally published in Screensaver Ninja‘s blog. We were recently challenged by someone who asked what was so special about adding websites into a screensaver.
