Functional Institute - Bootstrap

  • Jan 9, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • codecentric AG

The first meetup of the Functional Institute.

Everyone who have participated our Clojure workshops and other meetups is invited. We'll start our journey of learning Functional Programming ideas, paradigms through Clojure and Haskell.

We strongly advise to come with your own hardware, since we're going to be mostly hacking & learning new things. 

During the bootstrap meetup, we'll go through the subjects we learned during Clojure Workshop, and will check the level of all the participants in order to come up with best learning plan for all.

Join or login to comment.

    Thanks everyone for coming over.

    To repeat myself: we're going to schedule the next event during upcoming days. During next meetup we'll get to implement parts of ClojureWerkz EEP (Embedded Event Processing library https://github.com/clojurewerkz/eep) and learn some useful patterns, such as let-over-lambda, working with state, handling callback logic, working with data streams and so forth.

    For that, I'd recommend starting with getting started library: clojureworkshop.com/articles/getting_started.html and implementing at least a part of https://github.com/defworkshop/defworkshop I'll get more docs and a blog post on the subject shortly.

    Looks promising at start: seems I will be forced to know clojure ;), but it's nice — especially since this meetup also easily gives a functional knowledge in a practice-way for free, which is still hard to achieve at work/home for lots of us; the same hard as to find someone to ask for magic knowledge in a rush :).

    Hey guys, we recommend bringing your hardware along. Since first meetup is going to be mostly devoted to Clojure, I highly recommend installing Leningen and IntelliJ + Cursive (or any text editor of your preference). You can find more information on `getting started` here: http://clojure-doc.org/articles/tutorials/getting_started.html More on environment setup here: http://clojure-doc.org/articles/content.html#essentials

      Hey, this will be a recurring meetup. I understand that we may clash with other user groups every now and then. Our main purpose is so allow people to have a recurring, frequent date and allow them to come to every other meetup. The format suggests that it will be a learning experience, a meetup where people won't listen to some talks and consume, but rather produce the content, ideas and implementations themselves. Like a hack club, maybe. There are around 20 meetups in Munich we potentially clash with, and we're trying to monitor Haskell, Scala and Data Geeks, the meetups that relate to Munich Lambda more or less directly, although we won't be able to avoid clashes with all the UGs, I'm sorry about that.
