CLOJURE: FUSION OF SIMPLICITY AND SOPHISTICATION

CLOJURE: FIVE MYTHS AND FACTS. WHERE DOES THE TRUTH LIE?

  • Startups and early adopters are the ones winning with Clojure. Not exactly. A good number of giants, such as Facebook, Walmart, and so on, have experience working with Clojure for their project development and further practical implementation.
  • Large teams of developers are needed to develop and support the applications. The real-life experience of the current companies proves the opposite. Few experienced engineers will work just fine.
  • Clojure developers are rare in the IT market and due to that fact, it is not worth working with Clojure. Unfortunately, there is a grain of truth in the statement. Clojure developers are fewer than the other languages engineers. Nevertheless, this fact by no means lessens the value of Clojure. A ‘secret weapon’ of the language is its capability of finding smart developers on its own. What is more, usually, you need only a few of them.
  • It is hard to master the language fully. Learning Clojure may take a while. Abundance of features, a variety of approaches while making a software solution may seem to be a real challenge. If one succeeds in handling it decently, he will be overwhelmed by the benefits to reap.
  • Back-end only? Not necessarily. Nowadays, Clojure is a full-stack language with the same tooling on both programming sides.
