Clojure + D3
D3.js is a powerful JavaScript library that helps generate beautiful visualizations in the browser by mapping Arrays and Objects to DOM elements. Because of D3’s functional-style API, it works very well with ClojureScript! In this talk, I’ll go over how D3’s API works in ClojureScript with various examples and show useful ClojureScript libraries that make creating visualizations more fun. Joanne Cheng is a web developer who came to love Clojure(Script) from her years of writing JavaScript, Ruby, and Python applications. She’s currently a freelance developer who loves working on data visualization and UI problems.

What we're about

Curious about clojure? Already a fan? Either way, you're welcome to join us. Clojure is about a lot of things: functional programming, lisp, the JVM, concurrency, data structures, etc. So is this group.

Our aim is to have a monthly meetup, with a topic that's announced ahead of time, and either a presentation, a discussion, or a lab. While there doesn't need to be a presentation, before we decide to do a topic, we should have one or more people volunteer to lead the topic. Leading a topic could simply mean providing link(s) to information about it ahead of time and being prepared to answer questions about it at the meetup.

A few ideas for topics:

Getting started (labrepl (http://foognostic.net/labrepl-summary/), leiningen (http://github.com/technomancy/leiningen), cljr)

Testing (clojure.test (http://richhickey.github.com/clojure/#clojure.test), circumspec (http://github.com/stuarthalloway/circumspec), Midje (http://github.com/marick/Midje))

Web development (compojure (http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Compojure), ring (http://github.com/mmcgrana/ring), enlive (http://github.com/cgrand/enlive))

Web deployment (jetty (http://github.com/mmcgrana/ring/tree/master/ring-jetty-adapter), Pallet (http://github.com/hugoduncan/pallet))

Database Connectivity

Data Analysis (Incanter (http://data-sorcery.org/))

Outside of the monthly meetup, anyone in this group is welcome to suggest meetups where we pair program or just meet up and hack on our own projects with fellow Clojurians.

We typically meet at the Turing School of Software & Design (https://www.turing.io/). The meetup will likely take place from 6:00PM-8:00PM on a weeknight. Please send your suggestions to cljr-list@meetup.com . For up to date documentation please check out: http://clojure-doc.org
