Clojure Toronto meeting

Come join us for an evening of talks, programming and socializing centered around the Clojure language!

If you'd like to give a short 5 or 10 minute talk please tell us a little about it in the comments section. If you can think of a small programming exercise that correlates with your talk that would be great. If you need talk topic ideas check the discussion board.

We'll probably do three or four short talks, plus a recap of Clojure/West, and then start programming in pairs or small groups. 

Doors open at 6, talks start at 6:30. See you there!

    Excellent meetup folks! I'm sorry I couldn't stay past the excellent talks due to some production commitments, but hope to stick around for the 4clojure exercises or other hacking opportunities in the next meetup. I have gone ahead and created a thread for yesterday meetup for folks to share their slide decks from the talks, or links to the projects that were talked about (the Time Tracker sounds really cool! it would be something that might actually be useful for the kind of firefighting work I do for a day job :) ... Cheers!

    Good site for practice problems. Big selling point for me is being able to see other people's answers, really speeds up the learning.

      I really like this site - I wrote about playing with Haskell on exercism.io here: http://reganmian.net/...­. PS: Thanks for a great meetup yesterday guys. It was my first, and as a Clojure beginner, I wasn't sure whether to go, but I am very happy I did.

    Got it
    (fn rev [in]
    ((fn inrev [in out]
    (if (empty? in)
    out
    (inrev (rest in) (cons (first in) out)))) in '()))

    Hi everyone! Great to see you tonight at our second meetup! Big thanks to Adam and James for sharing tonight.

    I've posted the meetup for next month -- if you've got a talk idea or a project you'd like to hack on tell us about it in the comments. See you soon!

    What should I have installed on my laptop for tonight?

      Ideally Clojure and a web browser. We have a couple talks lined up for this evening, and we'll probably do some pair programming after that.

      I know you're interested in Clojurescript and Om also -- having those installed could be good in case someone wants to do that as a programming project.

      My recommendation is to have Leiningen installed: http://leiningen.org/­

    We need to put some pictures on the meetup site this time around so if you are averse to it just yell! Excited that it is already the second meetup! :)

    I'd be happy to talk about my cljs-promises library next Tuesday:

    It's only eight days to the next Clojure meetup -- if you have something you'd like to share tell us about it here in the comments. If you need inspiration we've collected quite a few topic ideas on the discussion board. Off the top of my head I'd love to see something on Overtone or core.logic. James has a nice write-up discussing the different use cases for promises and CSP-style channels in core.async: https://github.com/jamesmacaulay/cljs-promises#rationale

    Feel free to self-promote your Clojure libraries/articles here in the comments or on the discussion board -- we'd all love to hear more about the Clojure development that's happening in our local community!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
