On 24 April, Waldemar and I will host a Clojure intro workshop, where
attendees program Conway's Game of Life  in small groups.
First, we'll set up Clojure. Then we'll provide a Clojure "cheatsheet"
with all the basic forms you'll need to program the game. We'll
quickly demonstrate how to take and mold these forms into a program...
then we all begin!
Where: Adcloud GmbH @ http://goo.gl/map...
When: 24 April, 17:00
As for the upcoming Clojure Cologne meeting on 18 April... I've used
Clojure recently at work. I can discuss a few things:
* Auto-reconnecting to RabbitMQ took extra effort. (Auto-reconnect
is necessary because connections fail in distributed systems.)
I'll demonstrate my new opensource lib aimed at making RabbitMQ
simpler to use.
* I suspected Clojure's unit-testing story would be pretty
grim. Surprisingly, Midje is world-class and simple. (Plus, it
supports a top-down design philosophy, if you wish to dig deeper.)
Unit tests were tiny, and anticipated all my use-cases.
Like Common Lisp's "loop" macro, Midje is a case study in powerful
"non-Lispyness"... (Though perhaps not to loop's extreme.)
All the best,
