Welcome to the Clojure Deref! This is a weekly link/news roundup for the Clojure ecosystem. (@ClojureDeref RSS)


The big news this week is of course the Clojure 1.11 release! We are really happy this is now out there and available. It seems like people are enjoying a lot of the new functions available. Please drop any questions or issues at

We also saw the launch this week of The Clouncil, a new interactive Clojure show for beginners - it was a lot of fun.

Also I wanted to highlight Daniel Higginbotham’s post Learning Clojure yields surprising long-term benefits. These companies are hiring and will train you. which is does a great job highlighting some benefits of Clojure.
