Wow. Sometimes I witness some engineering that leaves me feeling joy and inspiration. I felt that way about the Golden Gate Bridge. But sometimes I feel that way about code. For instance, right now, I just learned that the defun macro for Clojure allows this function for calculating a fibonacci number.
A fibonacci function: (defun fib ( 0) ( 1) ([n] (+ (fib (- n 1)) (fib (- n 2))))) Output: (fib 10) ;; 55
That is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.Source
