Fwd: Interested in creating a Clojure course

There's a clojure course in the works at :?http://rubylearning.com/blog/2010/03/09/clojure-101-a-new-course/.
They're looking for participants as well as teachers, which may be of interest to the group

Here's an update on this:

Since the planned course would be free of charge and all teachers
would be volunteers, Mark Volkmann agreed to let us use his excellent
article on Clojure as basis for our teaching materials. So far only
Baishampayan Ghose (the man behind Planet Clojure) and me have
expressed interest in teaching these courses, but more teachers would
obviously be better.

Here's a short list of our next step, help would be more than welcome:

*) decide on a 8 curriculum for an 8 week course based on Mark's
article (which chapters to use in which order etc)

*) design exercises for each week

*) optional (but fun): design quizzes the students can take each week

Once we got the above things figured out, we could have a first beta
version of the course up on RubyLearning.

The new Clojure course on RubyLearning has now officially been
announced with a tentative starting date of mid to late April:

http://rubylearning.com/blog/2010/03/09/clojure-101-a-new-course/
We decided to shorten the course to 4 weeks and have decided on a curriculum.
We still could need some help with this, ideally there would be 3-4
exercises each week reflecting the contents of the lesson. If you are
interested in helping out with this, drop Baishampayan or me a line
and we'll add you to the GitHub repo.

It also still would be nice to have 1-2 more assistant teachers. From
my personal experience with teaching the Ruby courses for the past
year, this can easily be done with about half an hour of free time per
day. Just drop into the forums, answer questions and give some
feedback on the exercise solutions. It's fun and quite a rewarding
experience.
