What we're about

An open and friendly community that supports the adoption and practice of Clojure in any of its forms.

Clojure is a great way to learn functional programming thanks to a small and well crafted syntax and focus on simplicity. Clojure is a powerful, productive and fun language, based on LISP and hosted on Java, JavaScript, Microsoft CLR, GraalVM, and Golang.

London Clojurians is a very active community with several events per month, including technical talks, coding dojo's, hackdays and a yearly conference. We hope you will join us and increase your knowledge and appreciation of Clojure and add your own experiences to our community.

Online Talk: Clojure & gRPC - overcoming F.O.M.O.!

Online event

**THIS IS AN ONLINE EVENT** [Connection details will be shared 1h before the start time] Title: Clojure & gRPC - overcoming F.O.M.O.! Local time: https://countle.com/aqmXRZtig (click here for local time) Sathya Vittal (https://github.com/sathyavijayan) will be presenting his experience with gRPC in Clojure. It’s the best time to be working in technology, but its also the time when there are just way too many things to keep an eye on and learn. There is too much FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out), causing anxiety. The talk is about how Sathya overcame his anxiety and what aspects he looked at while designing RPC-based APIs. Sathya joined the industry like Asok, aspiring to become Dilbert, but is now worried he is turning into Wally or worse, the dreaded Pointy Haired boss. At his day job, he is the CTO of Verbo, where he and his team are building tools that help fast-growing E-Commerce merchants leverage data and AI to increase revenue and operational efficiency. He is crazy about Clojure, Coffee, Cricket and Cooking!

London Clojure Dojo at uSwitch

uSwitch

uSwitch is located on the first floor of the ZPG building at 5 Copper Row, London, SE1 2LH, London (Click on the map for directions) The Clojure dojo is a collaborative way to learn Clojure/ClojureScript through practice. The aim is to learn a little more than before you started. This event is for those new to coding through to more experienced developers. We organise into small groups (2-4) people and write code to solve challenges great and small, chosen by those at the event. We aim to ensure someone in your group has some Clojure experience, so you shouldn't feel lost (well no more than all developers do when Stack Overflow is broken). Example challenges for the coding dojo are listed on this website: http://www.londonclojurians.org/code-dojo/ # Approximate schedule: 18:40 Doors open and start collecting suggestions 18.45 Pizza should have arrived 19:00 Quick intros and vote on suggestions 19:15 Break out into groups and start practising 21:00 Gather together for a quick show and tell # What should I bring? We organise into small groups, so if you have a laptop with a working Clojure environment please bring it along (there are lots of online Clojure environments, so you can just use your browser too). # How do I get in to the building? Look for the big ZPG sign and at the glass doors press the buzzer to inform the security guard you are here. Say you are here for the event on the first floor. Is there way to talk with the Clojure community? Why yes. The Clojurians Slack channel is full of friendly people who love to try and help. People based in London are often in the #clojure-uk channel. Sign up for a free account to the Clojurians Slack community via http://clojurians.net/ What is Clojure? Clojure is a JVM language that has syntactically similarities to Lisp, full integration with Java and its libraries and focuses on providing a solution to the issue of single machine concurrency. Its small core makes it surprisingly easy for Java developers to pick up and it provides a powerful set of concurrency strategies and data structures designed to make immutable data easy to work with. If you went to Rich Hickey’s LJC talk about creating Clojure you’ll already know this, if not it’s well worth watching the Rich Hickey “Clojure for Java Programmers” video or Stuart Halloway “Radical Simplicity” video .
