> PragPub, the free monthly electronic magazine for software developers > from The Pragmatic Programmers, will be publishing a special Clojure > issue in July, and we're looking for articles.
> I'm committed to sourcing at least one article in that issue from one > of the many active Clojure user groups around the world. I've been a > believer in developer user groups since the 1980s when I was editing > Dr. Dobb's Journal, inspired by Dennis Allison's image of a community > of developers standing on each other's shoulders, and I know there are > some great ideas out there.
> So we *will* publish at least one article from a Clojure user group, > and when we do, we will prominently acknowledge the user group as well > as the author.
> I'm speaking now to every member of this group. Write me an article. > Write it in whatever format works for you, let the content dictate the > length, and for guidance on style, you can't do better than to look at > any of the articles we've published in the past two years: > http://pragprog.com/magazines. A few of them have even been about > Clojure.
> As for the technical level, assume the reader is an experience > programmer but isn't experienced with Clojure. Your article will > probably, in one way or another, answer the question, why Clojure? It > might be a Clojure success story (with a technical explanation of why > Clojure was instrumental to the success), or a particular aspect of > Clojure that you find interesting (with code showing how it can be > used to good effect), or advice on thinking in Clojure. You probably > have a better idea than any of these.
> I really want to see your idea. Just send it to my email address: > mich...@pragprog.com. But time is critical. The deadline for articles > is only about a month away: June 22. I eagerly await your brilliance.
