So I've got this crazy thought that we should implement pacman in clojure.
I'm not too sure where to start. Although I'm pretty sure it's not with graphics. Although graphics would be pretty. And I like pretty.
Who want to try to TDD pacman in Clojure this week?

I took a shot at going a little further... does some simple drawing

Hi Tom, I continued based on your initial matrix approach, it may not be compatible with your latest commits. I had some fun with the graphics too, drawing a real pac-man board. For anybody interested my code is here https://github.com/dam... One challenge with the grid approach is to make pacman move smoothly by displaying it multiple times between cells, without going partially over walls.

Good, but a bit chaotic :) we need a more specific plan!

Hey guys, I'm a total noob to closure, but I can code on c#. Is it ok to join and watch you guys?

Hey you should definitely come. I'm a c# guy too and clojure is all Greek to me. But I'll be going.
Absolutely. Please come, the more Clojure you know the better, but there are people around to help with syntax. Clojure's a lot like LINQ in C#. Just with more brackets.
Thanks guys. I'm here in Brampton, will leave by 4:45 and hopefully get there at 5:30.
I vote for leiningen, clojure and quill ( https://github.com/quil/quil )

Great idea. If we're to create a game in Clojure, I recommend reading: http://www.chris-granger.com/2012/12/11/anatomy-of-a-knockout/
Or, for those who have 45 minutes to invest, watching the corresponding video from Clojure/Conj: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1Eu9vZaDYw
Also, maybe we could consider ClojureScript instead of Clojure. Does anyone know how much bootstrapping is required? That would probably make the pretty graphics easier to reach.
I've done some playing around with ClojureScript, it's not too bad to get set up. (lein-cljsbuild is definitely the way to go.) This would definitely be a multi-session project though!
The choice of which testing approach to use with CLJS is the biggest question mark for me: basically you can either cross-compile everything and just test it as if it's clojure (but you aren't able to test browser stuff easily) or you run browser tests with some JS testing framework using CLJS (I've done this with a Jasmine/Testacular setup).
After last night's Go Dojo, I decided to finally do a Clojure poker hands implementation of my own: https://github.com/jamesmacaulay/poker-hands

Lucky man ;)
Hmmm... I'll see what we can do. Are people unhappy with the new Erlang direction?

I'm happy with the Erlang direction and would like us to stick with it for now. I'm mainly just pining for more Clojure in my life in general.
Im doing clojure full time now, learning lots of neat things that i would like to share. I am able to host at csi spadina. I can handlesmall or large groups as well.

Meetup to do Randori-style coding dojos weekly. Initial sessions will be simple problems developing in Clojure. Format will be:
5 minute introduction to coding dojo
100 minutes of implementing the problem
15 minute retrospective + plan for next session.
Getting Started with Clojure:
1,213 DevOps fans
1,530 IoT Entrepreneurs
5,945 Social Crew
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.
