Hope you've all enjoyed the summer!  Our next meeting is on Monday 17th September at MadLab’s PLANT NOMA

(Redfern, Dantzic Street, NOMA, M60 0AE).

The meeting starts at 7pm (doors open a little earlier, we aim to start by 7:05pm).

Please register to let us know you’ll be attending.

Come and learn some some Lisp with us! Clojure is a powerful dynamically typed language with a strong focus on immutability. It runs on the Java virtual machine, making interoperability with Java code easy. It’s not just a back-end language, though - there’s also a ClojureScript dialect which can be compiled to JavaScript, so you can use it for your full stack.

This month, we’re running a workshop where we’ll help you set up a Clojure development environment and run through some simple exercises to get you started. No experience required, but please bring your laptop!

If you’re a more experienced Clojure developer, feel free to come and help out or work on your own project!

This event is generously sponsored by Equal Experts, a network of talented, experienced software consultants, specialising in agile delivery. Equal Experts will be providing refreshments!
