Clojure for Beginners Part 2: Seqs and Lists
Russ Olsen

This is the 2nd in a series of talks about Clojure for beginners. This time it is all about Clojure's favorite way of looking at the world, the Seq. Seqs are everything to Clojure: No matter if you are dealing with lists or arrays or maps or files or regular expressions or even Clojure code itself, if you are doing it in Clojure then you are doing it with a seq. In this talk I'll start by looking at where the idea of the seq came and then turn to the incredibly rich seq API built right into Clojure.

Calling Clojure from Java

Speaker: Bryan Weber

From Bryan: "I could do a presentation (and live coding session) on calling Clojure from Java. We all know it works well in the other direction, but let's explore what calling a Clojure library from Java looks like!"

Don't forget to bring your laptop for some live coding.

    Russ provoked and fielded many good questions from novice Clojurians. Brian developed and presented several good code samples demonstrating the subtle but important quirks with calling Clojure from Java. Turnout was good with several well known, friendly Clojurians!

    A wide range of interesting people. I came away with an better understanding of what clojure is, how it interacts with the JVM; but I can't help wonder what problems are really 'well solved' using it -- why would I want to use it. I suppose that's more of a 'why use lisp' question though.

    I could watch Russ speak on almost any topic. Brian's talk was a pretty nice dive into some of the hairier parts of java interop.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
