A free Clojure workshop will be run by MFUG and clj-melb on Saturday the 23rd of March. Thoughtworks will kindly host at their offices on level 14, 303 Collins St. We will begin at 10am and finish at 5pm. Please bring your own laptop.
The premisis will be locked on the weekend. Give me a call on[masked] and I'll come and let you in.
The format of the day will be:
- Get everyone set up
- Introduce the language basics
- Have everyone solve a few problems
- Break for lunch
- Introduce some more advanced features
- Have everyone work on a program
Experience with some kind of programming is required. There will be several experienced Clojurians on hand to help out in any way they can. If you can't bring a laptop then contact me beforehand and I'll try to find someone to work with you.
We would appreciate it if you could get your machine set up for clojure development before the workshop. If everyone comes prepared we'll save a good deal of time and be able to cover more. Please install Leiningen (1), it will bring a version of Clojure down with it. Also I recommend either the Catnip (2) editor or Eclipse (3) with the Counterclockwise plugin (4). Don't stress if you're unable get setup, we'll help you out on the day.
If you have any questions or suggestions please email me at [masked].
