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.

Clojure Weekly Study Group

Needs a location

YouTube Live broadcast: https://youtu.be/KjCibf3hCOc 9am this week This week I want to continue investigating Clojure CLI tools and associated libraries, continuing from where we left off last week. --- A weekly Clojure study group via YouTube for those starting their Clojure journey or looking to practice their Clojure and understand functional programming via practice. Please suggest topics you would like to cover in the comments section, or discuss ideas in the #practicalli channel of the Clojurians Slack community All sessions will be broadcast and you can watch live or the recording if you want to catch up afterwards. http://yt.vu/+practicalli Thank you John Stevenson https://practicalli.github.org @practical_li

London Clojure Dojo at ThoughtWorks (Soho)

ThoughtWorks London office

The goal of the Clojure dojo is to raise the confidence and experience levels of those that attend through practical exercises. These events support those new to Clojure as well as more experienced developers from the London Clojure community. Suggestions for practical coding challenges are added on http://www.londonclojurians.org/code-dojo/ as we find them and we also have a Github repository https://github.com/ldnclj # How the event works After we have decided on some challenges for the evening, we break into small groups (2-4 people) and see how far we can get. After about 90 minutes we get together and share what we have learnt, showing code and demo's of it in action. # Requirements If you have a laptop with a working Clojure environment please bring it along. As we arrange ourselves into small groups, if you don't have a laptop you can still join in. # Discussions We’ll be discussing the meetup on the london-clojurians mailing list (http://groups.google.com/group/london-clojurians/) If you want to know how to run your own dojo or get an idea of what dojos are like you can read more at http://otfrom.wordpress.com/2010/10/26/faq-how-much-do-i-need-to-know-before-i-come-to-the-dojo/ # Background 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” (http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/java-jee/clojure-for-java-programmers) video or Stuart Halloway “Radical Simplicity” (http://skillsmatter.com/podcast/java-jee/radical-simplicity) video.
