Clojure, an overview. Introduction gathering.

18:00-18:15: Gathering.

18:15-19:00: Why Clojure?

A closer look at the philosophical foundation of Clojure, its place in computer science in terms of heritage, influence and motivation.

Speaker: Daniel Szmulewicz

19:00-19:15: Break

19:15-20:00: Clojure's data structures

Catering to newcomers, we will hold a workshop-like session in which we will examine the data structures built in Clojure, and why they are said to be both immutable and persistent.


Please feel free to come forward and suggest a topic for future meetups.

The Hub TLV is kindly hosting our first meetup on a voluntary and conditional basis, ie. provided nobody rents the studio on said date and time. However, depending on the number of people, there is a smaller space we can use, also courtesy of the Hub. If you're a company and want to sponsor a permanent place for this meetup in or around Tel-Aviv, please do come forward.

    Hi, Is this group focus on google closure library or is it more general ?

    The purpose of this group is to explore, study and debate the Clojure programming language. This latest incarnation of a Lisp language is thriving, and as such represents some sort of a miracle for old-timers who hold it to be the one True language, but it is also a boon for younger developers who discover that writing directly in tree from can be liberating. Aside from philosophical concerns around immutability, concurrency, STM, lambda calculus and the functional programming paradigm, we will also welcome pragmatic topics of discussion such as web application development, java interoperability and adoption of the technology by the industry.

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.
