Bucharest FP #24 — Clojure Workshop

  • Yesterday · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Good news, everyone!

Ricardo Méndez, who presented last year, has graciously offered to hold a Clojure workshop on Saturday, December 3rd.

The workshop is free of charge and open to anyone who wants to come, but there are a few strict rules:

• The workshop takes place if at least 5 people will be present;

• Due to space limitations, we can only accept a total of 8 participants;

• RSVPs can only be changed until November 26th. If you say you'll come, please come.

The workshop will take between 6 to 8 hours and will be structured as follows:

• Introduction to functional programming and Clojure, as a brief talk;

• Introduction to Clojure, as a hands-on REPL-focused section;

• Actual coding, where we'll build a database-backed web app, in Clojure and ClojureScript.

You'll have to come with your own laptop and an already installed copy of Intellij IDEA (the community edition is free). The Cursive plugin for Clojure must also be installed.

Acceptance is done on first-come, first-served basis.

Eloquentix will provide snacks and drinks.

If you have further questions, please post them as comments to this announcement. See you then!

    I`m gonna be late 15 minutes, go ahead and start without me

      Well, I didn't realize they had moved their offices, so I think you'll get there for the start.

    I've re-opened RSVPs because someone said No yesterday and Meetup didn't automatically fill in the vacant spot. So, please, review your RSVPs and be there tomorrow.

    Continuing with the somewhat improvisational nature, let's try something different. If anyone who's on the waiting list and didn't get in wants to attend virtually, I'd be happy to have a CodeShare video feed running through the workshop. You get to hear the discussions, and we can take questions through the Matrix channel.

    Eloquentix is sponsoring us with two Clojure books. We'll let Ricardo decide who the recipients will be or what method we'll use to determine them. He also chose the titles.

      Nice books.

      Both highly recommended, with "Brave and True" being the best starting point.

    Hi everyone! With the weekend fast approaching, I'd like to remind attendees to please make sure you can make it, so that if you can't people on the waiting list have a spot.

    See you on Saturday!

    Just a reminder that we now have a chat room. Would be great if everyone can stop by and comment on the level of experience they have, both with functional programming languages in general and Clojure specifically. It'll help tailor things.

    I've created a Matrix room for Bucharest FP, we can probably handle questions there better than on the meetup page.

    To clarify, strictly speaking we don't need IDEA and Cursive, but it would be my recommended environment. You could also use Atom or VS Code.

    While Cursive is a commercial plugin, you can get a free license for non-commercial use.

      Take a look at the spacemacs page for clojure / cider­ is there any funcionality missing that cursive has?

      It looks like they are aiming for the same bulletpoints, but it's hard to tell from key binding lists how good the support is.

      For instance, I can't say how good their refactoring is, or their test integration, since I'm not an emacs user. I don't see things like structural editing or highlighting unused namespaces, but they might support it. They have a passing mention of reformatting, but can't tell from the outside how much control you get over style, or if you can just apply it to some blocks.

      I also wonder if they do the subtler, nice things that Cursive does for helping, like intellisense on keywords you have used elsewhere in the project.

      There's some time before the workshop, so feel free to download both and test which one fits your style the best.
