What would you say is the best online Clojure resource that's outside your book? What have your followers reported is the most popular resource (again, outside your book)?

I admire the authors, but I don't think I'd call myself a follower. :-) Maybe if I get a free copy of the book ...

Look at 4clojure.com. It's a fun way to learn.

And of course clojure.org.

I would second Palak's suggestion; Mark Volkmann's mega-article on Clojure is a great read, and excellent introduction and reference.

Added the link and the thought (thought as shared by Chas) to the Clojure FAQ page!!

Hate to reply on threads from last year, but I had to say that Clojure Atlas is an interesting idea.

What's even more interesting is that during a talk on Clojure pain points Chas Emerick said that you'll HAVE to read the source code eventually ( something about chunked sequines and deaf inlines .) So to make it easier to read through the source, Chas made the Clojure Atlas to visually navigate through not only clojure source but abstract concepts.

Other than that, there are always youtube and infoQ videos.

The Try Clojure site (http://tryclj.com/) has the shortest tutorial I've ever seen but it's a nice online REPL except for a few quirks. I also have a repl on my phone so I can play around with Clojure when I'm bored in long lines or on the toilette.

My apologies. I'll make sure I edit that part out of my post when the "edit" button comes back.



Back on topic, I forgot to mention the ClojureTv channel on youtube. It has a lot of good videos from all the big conferences like No Fluff Just Stuff, StrangeLoop, etc.

Thanks for the tip - I just installed the Android Clojure REPL on my shiny new Nexus 7. Now it's officially a "useful" device and not just a cool toy...
