You have found Clojure and fall in love with it.

As any good Clojurian, you eagerly to try convert your colleagues, by showing them the power of immutability, the REPL, macros, core.async, protocols, multi-methods, ...

But they seem to be blind.

You have also tried to appeal to their aesthetic sense, the beauty of simplicity or just their good heart.

But none of that works.

Desperate, you have invoked Rich Hickey's name three times, and shout "Complected! Complected! Complected!" every time your teammate creates a new class.

But still no luck.

The video should be watched in repeat mode for 48 uninterrupted hours.

Apologies and happy Clojuring!
