Hands-down the best introductory Clojure video tutorial

If you've watched the Rich Hickey videos about the philosophical underpinnings of Clojure and would like to get practical with the language, I recommend watching the "Intro to Clojure" series of videos created by Code School. I find this to be a brilliant introduction to Clojure and Lisp - as dense and comprehensive as one can get in 10 videos of about 8 minute average duration.

The presentation is lucid and moves at a pleasant pace. What I especially like about this series is the great balance between the conceptual and the practical. Lisp concepts are illustrated using small, transparent code examples. This explains the core principles straight-on in a concrete manner without wandering off into abstractions and indirection.

Lisp is really more of a model of expression evaluation than a "typical" programming language and the videos make that extremely clear.

Topics covered, among others:

I feel I am more ready to take on Clojure after watching these videos. Check them out.
