Mauricio Szabo ( will be presenting:
"Lisp curse vs Lisp envy"
We sometimes say "this doesn’t exist in Clojure because of the Lisp
Curse", or blame it for some other lack of "mature libraries". In this
talk, we will revisit the idea of what the "curse" is, and what
other "curses" we have on other communities, to conclude if what we
have is a "bug" or a "feature".
Mauricio is a Clojure and ClojureScript developer, author of Chlorine,
Clover, Spock some other libraries; He calls himself a "test-freak",
he like motorcycles and windsurf, and a lot of other random things
