    Python bindings for Clojure

    Do clojure as a side gig or in free time. Let day job pay the bills. If you can, maybe incorporate clojure into work job to solve small problems (https://github.com/clj-python/libpython-clj and https://github.com/scicloj/clojisr provide bridges to/from python and r). There is a lot of effort going into the data science side as well; the scicloj effort has resulted in a lot of growth over the last 2 years. tech.ml.dataset, tech.ml (now scicloj.ml). Dragan has a bunch of excellent stuff in neanderthal and deep diamond. There are also bindings to other jvm libraries from multiple languages.

  • Riemann

    A network event stream processing system, in Clojure.

    Consider dabbling in a project to get your feet wet first. You have a neat problem you want solved? Give it a shot. There an interesting open source project, fork it and tinker with the code. This will be tremendously educational both vocationally and will help you get a feel for if you'd like to work in clojure all the time. There are a lot of projects, but I chose https://github.com/riemann/riemann to read and try better to understand real world clojure.
