Clojure Toronto meeting

Come join us for an evening of talks, programming and socializing centered around the Clojure language!

If you'd like to give a short 5 or 10 minute talk please tell us a little about it in the comments section. If you can think of a small programming exercise that correlates with your talk that would be great. If you need talk topic ideas check the discussion board.

We'll probably do three or four short talks, plus a recap of Clojure/West, and then start programming in pairs or small groups. 

Doors open at 6, talks start at 6:30. See you there!


NOTE: Please ask about the LispCast tutorial video discount links if you haven't received them already. A mail has been sent out to the membership (as it stands today Apr 28th,2014)

    Here's that project I mentioned, implementing Clojure-style data structures in Smalltalk:

    Here's the poker-hands code I went through last night:

    I'm sorry I'm still stuck at work and probably won't be able to make iit.. Most of the people voted for a weekend self paced option I wanted to discuss the place and times for it today but whatever you folks decide would be fine I'm good with weekend option too

    I could talk for a few minutes about Cascalog and another little project I am starting into, if there's interest?

      Hey all, I got hurt in a bike accident and won't be able to attend the meetup. Hopefully I will be in working order next time around. Feel free to ping me if you are interested in discussing a Grunt-like build tool for Clojure web dev (the aforementioned little project I am noodling on).

      Keep on lithping!

      Sorry to hear that -- get well soon, hope to see you next month!

    Would this meetup be appropriate for beginners wanting to learn Clojure?

      David Kettle, I don't know what your deal is. Are you a great internet warrior of days yore?

      Are you sure the organizers who are so welcoming to will appreciate your being an ass to another potential member?

      All I've pointed out is the amount of freely available learning materials; and a level of discourse beyond the very basics would be more useful (to me at least).

      You couldn't have wasted any of my time, as I've never been to this meetup. I am in fact not a wise clojure neckbeard, but a "beginner" also. But I have done the 4clojure exercises and read one book.

      I know this group is fairly new and put in my $0.02 as to what would make a good meetup for my limited free time. The organizers have said come one and come all. I'm cool with that. There is no call to get so hostile.

      It's really easy to read text as being more hostile than intended and to escalate based on that, so I'm going to step in and explicitly de-escalate this conversation. Let's work the misunderstanding out in person at the meeting -- everyone here is cool, and I know we can work together to bridge any differences while united by our common interest in Clojure.

    Organizers,

    First off, thanks for organizing this. I wonder if it's possible to have some
    kind of agenda for this meetup? I ask because I live in Markham and have to
    stay Downtown to attend any meetup and I need to make sure it's worth the
    opportunity cost.

    Thanks again for your hard work (http://www.ugtastic.com/meetups-hard-work/). I'm really appreciative of the opportunity to talk shop with like minded people.

      Historically we have a round of short talks for the first half of the meetup, and then pair up to work on projects or programming exercises for the second half, and then socialize informally for the third half.

      There are two talks mentioned here in the comments so far (anyone with a topic in mind please add it here!), and I know of two others that may happen if the speakers can attend. It's very informal and lightweight, and we're encouraging of sharing in an impromptu fashion even by those who are new to the language -- if you've done something interesting with Clojure, share it with us!

    • Le W.

      That's great information. Thanks dann. I don't have any cool clojure stuff this week (very much like others, I rarely find free time to work on clojure), but in the future I could do something around Emacs tooling, as that is my chosen editor.

  • Mike M.

    I would like to talk about the poll I added re: a mini/sub meetup to go through the Functional Programming with Clojure MOOC as a small group of interested individuals. Please take a moment to vote on the poll (we can discuss as a housekeeping item in the next meetup)
