A supportive community brings Clojure to the world

At some point I hope to write more about the Clojure community, for now, I link to this:

Over the last couple of years, the Clojure community has become an invaluable part of my life. It’s a space where all of me has been welcomed and accepted, since day one. The kindness, support and inspiration I have received from people in the community is boundless. My heart has been touched many times by the deep and genuine connections, old ones keep growing, new ones emerging. Whenever I started walking down the road of doubts, someone was there to pull me out of it and reflect back what I couldn’t see when the mental fog of my inner critic was getting denser and denser.

I am well aware that my approach to life is somewhat different from those of most people in tech. Yet, there hasn’t been a word of judgement towards me from any person in the community. Instead, I keep having animating conversations where I get to share from my experiences and learn from those of others.
