In other words, can everyone that can be accomplished in Java be also accomplished in Clojure?

Thank you,
Igor

I believe that the answer is yes.

Some folks will need to unlearn a lot more than others, but in the end, as long as folks see the underlying design principles and appreciate the reasons for them being there, they can gain mastery of Clojure programming. Patience is the only thing I advocate (patience to get past the first few days that it will take to get over the parentheses!)
