Before Clojure, he developed dotLisp, a similar project based on the .NET platform. Hickey is an independent software developer and a consultant with over 20 years of experience in many facets of software development. He has worked on scheduling systems, broadcast automation, audio analysis and fingerprinting, database design, yield management, exit poll systems, and machine listening.
He spent about 2½ years working on Clojure before releasing it to the world, much of that time working exclusively on Clojure without external funding.
