Learning Rails, Day 1

I noticed a trend. Clojure is awesome. And most Clojurists seem to use Rails. As such, I thought it would be worth investigating for myself.

Learning Clojure

About a year back, I took a programming languages class. I think it was a pretty standard course: boot camp style introduction to several languages across several paradigms. I found two things interesting. The first was formal grammars. I’d never thought of languages in that regard. Even when studying natural languages (I’ve taken a bit of Spanish and Arabic), I didn’t think of them in terms of the formal grammars that structured the language. Anyway, I thought it was really interesting that you could describe languages in such a structured, unambiguous way.
