The mission of Clojure/nyc is to foster a fun, collaborative environment for idea exchange and learning about the Clojure/ClojureScript languages. We are a growing and vibrant group. We welcome participation from everyone - all you need is an eagerness to try Clojure!
Continuing with our online virtual series before we are able to resume our face-to-face sessions we'll do something a bit different and host an international speaker.
Michiel Borkent is a Software developer from Amersfoort, the Netherlands. His contributions to open source in the Clojure community contains re-find, clj-kondo, jet, edamame, and babashka - to mention just a few.
Michiel will be talking to us about Babashka and other tools he has built around it and GraalVM. He will give us the scoop of how these tools came to be and the contexts where they shine. Michiel has been able to take Clojure to places where Clojure hasn't officially been yet. It will be exciting to pick his brain.
Due to the international nature of this event and considering the time zones involved, we will be having it on a Saturday afternoon. Please be aware that due to this being a virtual meeting, we will not have the initial time for socializing, so we'll aim to start pretty much on time.
I hope this invite finds you and your families safe and healthy during these trying times.
