Now, I want to try my hand at learning a functional programming (FP) language. Though I played with Lisp in school, I didn't fully grasp the core concepts of FP. After checking out Haskell and Elixir, I settled on Clojure.
What is Clojure Newbie?
Clojure Newbie is where I'll be tracking my progress as I learn aspects of using the language and consume core FP concepts.

Taking inspiration from Living Clojure, I'll be following Clojure news and working through problems sets on sites like 4clojure. The goal will be to build and launch a non-trivial Clojure application and/or library.
Interested in learning more about Clojure yourself? Here are some good starter resources I've come across:
