Recommended Readings

  • The economics of reuse - developing code for reuse costs much more than for one need - it might cost 300% more to develop and save you 75% of work when (re)using it instead of developing from scratch (if one of the factors goes down, the other one typically goes down too). Summary: "That means that to get any value from your reused component, you better have five or more reusers or you have to find a way to substantially improve the [reuse value factor] or [reusability cost factor]. Very smart people have failed to do this."

Clojure Corner

  • 8th Light: Combining Clojure and ClojureScript Libraries (3/2014) - really good and detailed article / tutorial using CLJX and platform-specific platform.clj[s] files to share code between Clojure and ClojureScript. It also recommends a file structure (src/(clj|cljs)/), demonstrates testing, discusses macro development, shows how to pack both into one jar.
