On the next meetup, we welcome Robert Avram who is going to present an interesting topic to us: typing disciplines in Clojure. Afterwards, we will start hacking in small groups, so please bring your own laptop with Clojure configured with you. If you need help with this, you will find someone at this meetup who helps you to get it up and running.

This meetup can be held in english or german language, depending on the preferences of the audience.

Honestly, there's no denying it. Types truly are useful. Extremism with respect to static typing may be debatable, but both the visible and checked guarantee of a function's behaviour is a rather invaluable tool. Clojure is by no means devoid of such tools, irrespective of its dynamism. I would like to show you the various ways you could "type" Clojure and what you gain, but also what you lose, by doing so.

Bio of Robert:
Robert is a software engineer at REWE Digital and spends some of his time building Microservices in Clojure, and the rest sporadically exploring the world of functional programming. From time to time he also likes to pester unwilling individuals with discussions about it.
