Robert C. Martin (Uncle Bob): "Clojure, up-close and personal: The Orbit Kata"

5:30 for "social hour" and light refreshments

6:15 talk

In this session you will learn Clojure by following along with Uncle Bob, step by step, and test-case by test-case, through the design of a simple Swing/Clojure orbital simulator app. Along the way you'll learn the value of Functional Programming, how (and why!) to design applications that use it, and why Clojure is the next important language that you should master. This session will be extremely challenging! Plan on requiring an hour or so of down-time to allow your neuronal excitation to exponentially decay to safe levels. 

Robert C. Martin (Uncle Bob) has been a programmer since 1970 and is Master Craftsman at 8th Light inc, founder and president of Uncle Bob Consulting LLC, and Object Mentor Inc., international firms that offer software consulting, training, and skill development services to major corporations worldwide.
Mr. Martin has published dozens of articles in various trade journals, and is a regular speaker at international conferences and trade shows.
Mr. Martin has authored and edited many books including:

Designing Object Oriented C++ Applications using the Booch Method

• Pattern Langauages of Program Design 3

    Quick question for a few of us coming from the far west :-) - is there a recommendation wrt the parking? That info would be helpful.....

      It is sometimes possible to find street parking. But in this neighborhood it is more expensive than the garages (after hours).

      Thanks to Ron and Udayan (missed you at the meeting) for the parking info. Once I got the parking stub validated at the desk, the parking did not sound too bad at all... Thanks again.
