ClojureBridge @ Funding Circle
Clojure Programming Workshops ClojureBridge is a free workshop teaching the Clojure programming language, for those who identify as women, transgender women & non-binary. ClojureBridge is emphatically queer and trans* friendly. We support people who are completely new to programming, through to existing developers new to Clojure. Why learn Clojure? Clojure is a modern, general purpose programming language that can be use to build apps for the web, mobile devices and desktop. The simple syntax of the Clojure language makes it a great choice for those new to programming, or existing developers who want to learn about functional programming. Clojure has a huge amount of libraries available to help you build a wide range of apps really quickly. You can use all the libraries from its host platforms, JavaScript/Node.js, Java or Microsoft .Net, too.The ClojureBridge workshop introduces you to fundamental programming concepts in Clojure through many practical examples and exercises. Coaches and assistants are there to guide you and help you build your first apps in Clojure.

What we're about

An open and friendly community that supports the adoption and practice of Clojure in any of its forms. Clojure is a powerful, productive and fun language, based on LISP and hosted on Java, JavaScript and Microsoft CLR. Due to its simple syntax, Clojure is a great way to learn functional programming. London Clojurians is a very active community with several events per month, including technical talks, coding dojo's, hackdays and a yearly conference. We hope you will join us and increase your knowledge and appreciation of Clojure and add your own experiences to our community.
