When you’re developing in Clojure, you’re interacting with a live system. You are in control, so you need to understand how the Clojure system works under the hood. In this lesson, we go over how Clojure executes code one expression at a time, how namespaces and Vars work, and how files can get out of sync with the runtime.

This lesson addresses some issues that came up with the switch to conveyor belts. How do we tell everyone to stop working when the trucks are loaded and ready to ship? We don’t want them to keep building cars. Learn about how to close channels so that they don’t accept any more work.
