He’s also the creator of the Clojure/West and Lambda Jam conferences, Lambda Lounge user group (for the study of functional and dynamic programming languages) and the Clojure Lunch Club. Alex has a strong theoretical computer science background with focuses in computational complexity and artificial intelligence, and has worked across the software and product lifecycle during his two-decade career, spending most of his time in Java and now in Clojure. SHOW NOTESStrange Loop Conference    Clojure LanguageCognitectNubank Douglas Hoofstader books  (Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid and I am a Strange Loop) Train to Busan“Simple Made Easy” talk, Rich Hickey, Strange Loop 2011Project AlloyCity MuseumITENThe World’s Fastest Indian 

Om Podcasten

The Prepare.ai Podcast explores the fast-paced world of emerging tech from the landscape of the Midwest, with a distinctly non-coastal vibe. Hosted by technologists Fully Teasdale and Dave Costenaro, the Prepare.ai Podcast highlights great work across artificial intelligence and machine learning, data science at scale, virtual reality and augmented reality, and robotics and robotic process automation, and features folks from boots-on-the-ground implementers to vision-creating founders. The Podcast is produced by Prepare.ai, a 501c3 whose mission is to increase collaboration around 4th-industrial revolution technologies in order to advance the human experience. We’re doing it from the heart of the Midwest, where the 1st- and 2nd-industrial revolutions brought growth and innovation, and where the 3rd eroded jobs and urban landscapes. This time, we will not be left behind. We will lead, not follow. Help us Prepare.
