In Clojure’s concepts section, the Bank Account problem is under Floating-Point Numbers concpet. The problem doesn’t seem to have anything to do with floating points. Perhaps we can create a new concept cateogry for such problems: Concurrency or Advanced or something like that?
I’d say this same rationale applies to Clojure as well, given Clojure’s top-notch support of concurrency management. There should really be a concurrency concept, containing several problems, in the syllabus.
A concurrency concept would be great! I’ll add it to the roadmap.
I was going to say some things, but the other thread says it perfectly. I would just echo what June said there that it’s not that it’s an oversight or even particularly difficult, the reality is we simply haven’t gotten that far yet! I’m still working on having a decent exercise for basic concepts like hashmaps, sequences, and function composition.
But to your first point, it seems that you’re right, and I suppose we could simply add the concurrency concept which would have the Bank Account exercise for now. Does it really not use floating-point numbers at all? I haven’t actually looked at it recently so that might be a mistake.
