Beginner Night

New to Clojure? Never fear! This is your night.

New to the language?

No problem.

Need Clojure or Emacs installed?

No problem.

Want an account on our EC2 node where you can practice Clojure?

No problem.

Want to build fault tolerant highly scalable big data services?

Well, let's start with the basics first.

The night will begin with a brief overview of the language interspersed with real world stories where folks describe their Clojure experience. After that we'll split up into groups where more experienced folks will pair with beginners. Everything from getting them started on their first project to installing pieces on their box so they can work. Beginners, this is your night.

I'm happy to announce a new sponsor!

Tyler Demansi from the Blackstone Technology Group has stepped up to the plate to help us out. More details on Wednesday.

    At Scala Denver we formed a study group to work through Odersky's Functional Programming course on Coursera. If similar courses are available for Clojure then a study group would be awesome for beginners with experienced members acting as teaching assistants.

    Sessions like this is where it started for me, and Dan had me writing higher order functions in no time!

    I should include that I had never written a line of code in my life prior. Looking forward to another enlightening meetup.

    Would love to make a future version of this event! Will be in Portland that night though.
