I'm sure no one on this list is oblivious to my deep love for Lisps
and for Clojure (http://clojure.org) in particular. Today, I thought
I'd share with you one of the coolest development environments to
appear thus far in this end of the programming community.
Light Table is a new IDE concept by Chris Granger (prolific author of
many very high quality ClojureScript libraries) that enables live
coding and debugging in a way never before realized in the programming
A lot of the ideas he's drawing from for this came from a recent talk
by Bret Victor, called Inventing on Principle, in which he makes the
very strong argument that developers should be more tightly connected
to the things they create. If you haven't already caught this talk,
please do yourself a favor and watch it over your lunch break sometime
And if you want to see the precursor to Light Table in action, here's
Chris' original attempt at implementing Bret's development environment
Wow. What an awesome time it is to be a hacker.
