Play ELC 2010: Rich Hickey and Joe Pamer - Perspectives on Clojure and F#
After a long day of sessions at Emerging Languages Camp 2010, I caught up with two of the day's presenters, Clojure creator Rich Hickey (you've met Rich before in an Expert to Expert episode with Brian Beckman) and F# compiler developer Joe Pamer. Clojure is a dynamic language that compiles to byte code/IL, targeting both the JVM and the CLR. Clojure is a Lisp. F# is a strongly-typed hybrid language that targets the CLR and employs a dual programming model—functional and object-oriented imperative.
