Clojure Development with Caleb Phillips and Wilkes Joiner

Lightning Talk - Effective Code Reviews with Dave Leeds

Clojure Development - Caleb and Wilkes will talk about their experiences using Clojure and Clojurescript at Cicayda, give a brief introduction to Clojure and Lisp, and let the audience get into some choose-your-own-adventure  Clojure / functional programming topics as time permits.

Dave Leeds - Dave has been developing web applications professionally for over twelve years.  He works as a programmer at Dave Ramsey's Lampo Group, where his passion for quality software design meets his passion for seeing people live with financial peace.

Caleb Phillips - Caleb has been writing code in Nashville since 1998.  His main languages have been Java, Ruby, and Clojure.  He has spent the past 15 years learning languages, tools, and disciplines in the hope that he can make the world of software development a little less crazy.

Directions - From Granny White Pike turn on to Maryland Way heading East Take your first Left onto Arcaro Plaza Turn in to the first parking lot on the Right Take an immediate Left and park near the main entrance to the building.

 

Please note, we've moved down to the first floor. Same building, just a new (bigger, nicer) space! We're now in a large area past the elevators on the left (coming from the main doors). Can't miss it - we'll keep an eye out as well.

Thanks to Vaco for putting this together for us!

    Big thanks to Caleb and Wilkes for such an interesting talk and having some real examples. Being able to ask questions and see things come together in real time really made a huge difference in my understanding vs. the cursory reading I had done on the topic. I'll definitely be trying some stuff out in a weekend project.

    Dave Leeds' lightning talk was one of the most concise and well-organized talks I've seen at a meet-up or conference.

    The clojure talk/demo was mind-bending. Connecting the browser back to the REPL in emacs was especially cool.

    Thank you everyone for your time, attention, and questions. Caleb and I had a lot of fun.

    Thanks Dave for the Code Review talk, great job!

    Hey all, thanks for listening to us last night. I would point anyone who wants to dabble with clojure to http://clojurekoans.com. It's a step-by-step guide to walk through the fundamentals of clojure. There's also http://www.4clojure.com/ that lets you solve problems in the browser.

    Very informative, and actually made me interested in the language. I'd seen a bit of Lisp before, but didn't really understand it - the way they explained the reasons for the syntax and what it all meant makes me want to take another look at the language. Thanks!

    @Dave Leeds, can you share those blog links from your last slide? I wanted to take a look, but couldn't get my cam up fast enough. Thanks!

      Thanks, Jeremy! The links from my last slide are in my comment above. (Just noticed this handy-dandy "reply" link that I could've used instead...)

    Will anyone be traveling to Vaco from Nashville (& returning to Nashville) ? - I will trade gasoline for transportation.

      I'm also interested in carpooling. Anybody driving down there with a spot in their car?

    I went ahead and posted this on nashvl.org.

      Thanks Cory. At one point nashvl.org was picking up our meetup rss feed. That must have broken down at some point.

      I thought so to, but it looks like it is a one time import.
