I am making an LDAP user manager and porting application for my workplace.

The thing is, i made the first version of it in PHP already. Shit works fine and it without an issue.

But

I had an itch to redesign it using another tech stack that would be speedier, more tested and using a more established platform.

Enter Clojure, a Lisp dialect for the JVM. In a single day I managed to get 80% of the application done. We have about 80k users inside of our ldap system(maybe more) and I tested it with 150 accounts, so far so good.

If this works I will be the first person to deploy a Clojure application, not only for my organization, but for the city as a whole while simultaneously being able to say that I got a Lisp app deployed and working :D

I am loving this. Really wanna have a Lisp app out there and add it to my resume.

The head of my department, an old timer and really ancient dev smiled heavily when I showed him the codebase. Not only is it minimal, it is concise and elegant :D

I love Clojure

And Texas

    Yayy go lisp family! I should look at clojure, scheme is nice and all but it'd be nice to have that industrial support.

    Clojure is way too progressive for Texas. Surprised your manager is allowing that

    @RememberMe Racket is one of the best bets. There is also Kawa Scheme, its Scheme on the JVM if tou want the purity of Scheme(which is always nice) and the portability of JVM binaries. Clojure is just my preferred one after hitting walls with CL man :P

    @stop i live surrounded by woods and desert. The air is amazing around here and population is minimal. This state is larger than most countries in Europe, so you are bound to have some absolutely clean areas.

    @stop the wiki post was condescending and not needed. Way to be a dickhead.

    On the plus side, with that attitude it is better to stay away. You would get lead intoxication.

    @stop shouldn't believe everything you read in the media. It's pretty peaceful around here. My back yard.
