Nubank was born in 2013 with the mission of empowering people to make better financial decisions. 

We can only do this because we solve complex problems with products that make the life of our customers easier. To get there, we always use the best in the world of technology – and that’s why we chose Clojure as our main programming language, which helps us build innovative products and solutions. 

Clojure is a simple and dynamic programming language, which has a code-as-data philosophy, and was released to the community in 2007. In 2022, the language turned 15 years old.

To celebrate, we took a look back at the programming language, from the beginning of its development by engineer Rich Hickey, to the present day. Now, we’ve also released a webseries with four episodes, recorded in Durham (USA), interviewing Rich Hickey, creator of Clojure, as well as the entire team dedicated to maintaining the language.

In these four episodes, you can learn more about the development of Clojure, understand how the language has been maintained over the years, and find out what are the prospects for its future. Check out the full content below.
