- Clojure, a modern Lisp? [Discussed at 0:20]
- Immutable data structures make Clojure powerful [Discussed at 1:01]
- Yes, you can program an AR drone in Clojure [Discussed at 2:04]
- But, how do you get started? It just takes three lines of code [Discussed at 3:47]
For the code behind the drone and Carin’s language Babar (inspired by Elephant 2000) check out her github page.
