October Amsterdam Clojure

    A good introduction to Clojure, followed by a nice ~15 min exercise of building a wiki website. I was particularly impressed by the latter.
    Ofcourse, great idea to also have a presentation uncle Bob!

    That was first my meeting with Clojure. The first presentation almost killed my interest to this language because comparison with Java wasn't fare. But the quick example of wiki code and quite impressive talk from Robert Martin (I was smiling as idiot until fell to sleep) convinced me to try it.
    Thanks a lot for organization!

    Uncle Bob was funny as hell.

    Very nice to see how Uncle Bob Martin puts the historical developments in computer-science in a (joined) perspective and based upon this knowledge that Clojure has a lot of potential. (clojure makes a real choice what it will (functional + immutable) contrary to F# and Scale that try to support multiple paradigms.

    It was good to talk to other Clojure enthusiasts and I enjoyed the presentations.

    I found the first presentation mediocre. The second was the first successful live-coding presentation I've ever seen, well done. This was the first time I saw Uncle Bob in real life, and it was great. I found his talk inspiring.

    Met some interesting folks, even a couple faces from the past, and felt very inspired after hearing Uncle Bob's amazing presentation.

    I was impressed to see so much interest towards Clojure and had fun time listening to the first two talks. I didn't enjoy Uncle Bob's talk much, for me it was way too longish and shallow to deserve special attention. The highlight of the night was actually "Building wiki site in 15 minutes" session, it really shows you the expressive power of Clojure and the significant amount of libraries you can use to start building useful things almost instantly.
    Very nice event overall.

    The event was a huge success, a number of people with little or no Clojure background were exposed to the brilliancy of the language, and Bob Martin shared an insightful elaboration on how and why software engineering is now again turning functional and lispy. Great talks, great people, great technology!
