June Clojure Dojo

This month we're starting our first Clojure Dojo. The goal of this session is to work on a fun problem in small groups and mixing Clojurians of different levels of experience.

If you're looking to get into Clojure, this is your chance. For more experienced Clojurians, we hope you can have fun sharing your experience and contributing to the community too.

Agenda

• 6:30 Meet & Greet social time w/ Pizza, Salad, Drinks

• 7pm Kick-off, brainstorm ideas, vote on one to do for the evening, form groups of 4 to 6 people

• 7:30 -  9:00 Do the dojo!

• 9:00 - 9:30 Each group takes turn doing a show and tell

Boston Clojure Group Meetups are held at Akamai in the conference rooms on the second floor (200C/D).

Please join us for a night of Clojure related discussion and group activities.

Future meeting ideas will be discussed over the meetup board and in our Google discussion group:  https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/boston-clojure .

    I love the idea of the Dojo but have 2 recommendations: 1. smaller groups. I'd say no more than 4 and preferably 3 people per group. 2. Smaller problems. Although some groups finished the tic tac toe problem, I felt that it was too big. At a previous meetup we did 4clojure problems. I think those problems are appropriately sized.

      I agree with smaller groups, maybe even pair programming. Also for specific frameworks maybe doing half talk and half hands on would be a good approach.

    I have been a VB/C# progammer in prior lifetimes but have been more immersed in the SAP/BO platform the last decade. Will I be holding folks back by my lack of CloJure knowledge/functional programming experience?

      Hi Bobby, the goal of the Dojo is to mix and match Clojure enthusiasts of different levels of experience together to solve fun problems. The more diverse the better. Please do come along next month.
