Curious about clojure? Already a fan? Either way, you're welcome to join us. Clojure is about a lot of things: functional programming, lisp, the JVM, concurrency, data structures, etc. So is this group.
Our aim is to have a monthly meetup, with a topic that's announced ahead of time, and either a presentation, a discussion, or a lab. While there doesn't need to be a presentation, before we decide to do a topic, we should have one or more people volunteer to lead the topic. Leading a topic could simply mean providing link(s) to information about it ahead of time and being prepared to answer questions about it at the meetup.
A few ideas for topics:
Outside of the monthly meetup, anyone in this group is welcome to suggest meetups where we pair program or just meet up and hack on our own projects with fellow Clojurians.
We typically meet at Stoney's Full Steam Tavern. The meetup will likely take place from 6:30PM-8:00PM on a weeknight. Please send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. For up to date documentation please check out: http://clojure-doc.org
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.
