I felt like all of the topics tonight were relevant to me. Perhaps they were basic enough for me to understand. Usually I don’t get much from the talks about machine learning, type systems, language design and other complex things.
What I don’t like about myself is that it’s almost one and a half years of working with ClojureScript for me, and still I call myself a complete newbie. It’s a nice way to set the expectations of my peers to a low level so that they don’t judge me at a high standard. But that’s embarrassing. I would like to get to an advanced level. Let me me remind myself that like anything in life, people don’t stumble into advanced things. It takes deliberate practice.
