10 Clojure Coding Techniques You Should Know and Project Openbike

What are ten Clojure coding techniques that you wish everyone knew? Wes and Troy from TurboVote helped me come up with a great list of tips and techniques. This will be a practical topic with lots of room for debate. There typically isn't one "right way" to do things in Clojure, so we will discuss solving real world problems.  Expect a high degree of audience interaction.

Networking starts at 6, technical presentation at 6:30.

Around 7:30 we'll check in on Surlybird and the status of Project Openbike.

Topics:

Threading macro

for (and all of its options)

going from let to destructuring

what goes in your docstrings?

repl tricks

clojure-test, with-redefs

get-in, assoc-in

Ruby symbols to Clojure keywords

require: prefix the ns or only pull in functions you need

code organization: util vs. support (orphan) namespaces

As always, food and drink sponsored by Cody Powell and our friends at Tek Systems

    Had to arrive late but had a great time hanging out with our close knit and accessible community. OpenBike.co is a truly inspired project

    Awesome! Unfortunately, most of it was over my head, but it was still very useful to see Clojure in action and talk to people who know it. Thanks!

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.
