Since learning Clojure will most often require a lot of experience in coding in Clojure, a practical consideration for any new learner will be having an effective environment for editing code, testing, deploying, etc. On the Clojure development (developer?) website, there are instructions on getting started with Clojure. I believe that these instructions are intended to be the official help resource for everyone, and people are making good effort to keep it up-to-date and authoritative. My attempt, with this post, is to formalize what I know, and then contribute over to the official documentation whatever others might find a useful addition.
