I continued to "play" with Clojure, that lead to writing of big article about it (in Russian) for "Practice of functional programming" journal. I also gave several talks about Clojure at MarginCon 2010, at meeting of Munster Java User Group, and at golodnyj's podcast (1, 2). And I also participated in development of several projects (Incanter, leiningen, swank-clojure, clojure-hadoop, and pair of my own). Although I had no time for Common Lisp & Scheme, but I hope, that I will work with them during reading of "Paradigms of Artificial Intelligence Programming: Case Studies in Common Lisp" that I bought week ago.
I also read a lot (corresponding shelf on shelfari, but reading queue is longer).
I visited USA for a first time in my life (business trip), and I want to visit it again, to meet with my friends on west and east coasts.
I have a lot of plans for next year:
- continue to work with Clojure with more involvement into different projects;
- I want to increase share of Haskell and Erlang in my projects, and maybe look at Scala, if I'll have a time;
- continue to experiment with machine learning, and besides this, I have some ideas for natural language processing based projects;
- continue to work with hadoop, and other big-data-related things;
- update existing articles about programming and Emacs, and maybe write something new;
- continue to hack Emacs, and I especially interested in providing support for functional languages in CEDET.
