Talk & Do Clojure

  • June 25, 2014 · 6:30 PM
  • VLACS

We'll start off the meeting with a short talk by Jenn Hillner  (Cognitect employee and Rich Hickey's sister) discussing the landscape of the Clojure job market. Aaron Brooks will follow-up with an introduction to test.check, and we'll spend the rest of the evening being lead by Paul deGrandis through a swarm coding session, creating a functional Rock-Paper-Scissors game.

    Good. Would have liked to have been more familiar with test.check before the talk.

      Tim, that's good feedback. I should have posted the John Hughes and Reid Draper talks a week or so ago and suggested that people watch them first. Sorry I wasn't on the ball with that.

    The swarm may be less swarm-y and more walk-through-y, but we'll find a rhythm that works

      As long as it's not smarmy. ;-) Should I change the description or leave it at that?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
