I don’t know what it is about the Clojure community, but it is very accepting of beginners and questions that sometimes ask for feedback stating the obvious. I have been programming over thirty years and paid to do so for over twenty-five years. I have used a lot of languages, but Lisp syntax has always thrown me for a loop.
The Clojure users group on Google http://groups.google.com/group/clojure?hl=en, Getting Clojure http://www.gettingclojure.com/, and resources on this blog’s Clojure Resource Page http://drknucklehead.wordpress.com/clojure-resources/ are good places to ask questions and get help.
It would be unfair of me not to include the Python community in this tribute as well. The core Python community is always encouraging and willing to answer questions. They are also a great group of people.
