- The schedule is as follows:
- 7-7:30pm: arrival, suggesting topics
- 7:30-8:30pm: working in groups
- 8:30-9pm: presentations
- 9-??pm: pizza, beer, discussions
- The goal of the session is to help people learn to start working with Clojure through practical exercises, with the help of the (at least!) 4 more experienced developers who will also come along to help form a bit of an Athens Clojure community. The dojo is a great place for new and experienced Clojure coders to learn more.
- What should I bring?
- We hope to break up into groups for the dojo. So if you have a laptop with a working Clojure environment please bring it along.
- How do I get in to the building?
- What is Clojure?
- Clojure is a JVM language that has syntactically similarities to Lisp, full integration with Java and its libraries and focuses on providing a solution to the issue of single machine concurrency.
- Its small core makes it surprisingly easy for Java developers to pick up and it provides a powerful set of concurrency strategies and data structures designed to make immutable data easy to work with. It’s well worth watching the Rich Hickey "Clojure for Java Programmers" video or Stuart Halloway "Radical Simplicity" video.
