If I could add a new programming skill it would be learning Clojure

I tried to learn it one time, as I was in awe of the idea of 100% functional programming, but had a very tough time wrapping my head around everything.

 

Closure is excellent; but definitely very difficult stuff. What do you want to use it for?

 

I was interested as an alternative to Java, and to potentially use it for more CPU intensive tasks. I read circleci uses Clojure as it scales extremely well.

Overall it seemed like just a challenge to learn, and boy was it a challenge haha.
