Our next meetup will be a hands-on coding session along similar lines to the London Clojure Dojos. We will have a go at implementing some collaborative filtering algorithms to make movie recommendations.
This event is open to all, from beginner to expert. You don't need any prior Clojure experience to attend; we hope to have enough experienced developers on hand to get everyone started.
Free beer! This meetup is sponsored by Metail, who are covering venue hire and drinks. Metail is recruiting! If you're interested in functional programming and want to work in an exciting startup environment where you can build out your Clojure webdev skils, check out the job listing.
If you have a laptop, please bring it along. You'll find some setup notes and background reading suggestions on github. It would be particularly useful if you could download the test data set and suggested dependencies before the Meetup, just in case the pub's wi-fi proves unreliable.
On the day, look for us in the first floor room at the Fountain, which we have exclusive use of until 10pm. The pub doesn't do a wide range of food, but you will be able to order from a selection of flat breads at the bar until 9pm.
