… they are looking for ways to make introductory computer science courses more user-friendly.
Their research involves integrating Clojure, a programming language, into introductory-level computer science courses…
The team’s goal is to create a beginner-friendly programming environment with Clojure. To do so, Machkasova and her student researchers are working on incorporating this programming language with Light Table, an integrated development environment that will improve the interface. From there, they can refine error messages and program feedback. The results of their work can benefit not only aspiring computer science students, but also all of Clojure’s users.
Some Clojure (pronounced like ‘closure’, according to its creator) resources:
- 4Clojure - Interactive exercises.
- Try Clojure - More interactive exercises.
- Clojure Koans - Clojure koans.
- Learn Clojure - Various resources.
- Why Clojure Will Win
NO NO PLEASE NOT CLOSURE OH GOOD GOD WHY? NO THIS IS NOT OKAY
