A team of renowned Clojure practitioners to catalyse and support the adoption of Clojure across Europe.
The workshop is 3 days in total, the first two introduce the basics of the language and gear up to the last day which covers advanced concepts and techniques. You can opt for any combination of the the 2 and 1 day workshops. We'll be training from The Hub, Westminster in Central London. The workshop will have at most 20 attendees, to 4 trainers.
We are a team of 4 long time professional and deeply enthusiastic Clojurists. We've deployed Clojure in a wide variety of interesting domains from atom splitting to music making.
Between us, we've have more experience teaching Clojure in Europe than anybody. You'll know you're in expert hands.
Our teaching method involves carefully sowing and then nurturing the seeds of Clojure's core concepts in an iterative manner.
Our sowing phase of each concept takes place through an "unplugged" session which will scaffold and demonstrate the concept through the use of a variety of illustrative props and audience participation. This allows us to collectively get direct into the core of each individual idea.
We will then fertilise and nurture these new concepts through an increasingly sophisticated set of mini-projects where you write code in groups with our guidance. This allows the ideas to be tested in a real context with chance for rapid and continuous feedback to accelerate the learning process. This is a truly intensive format and so we have all four of our trainers in the room to help, unblock and encourage. With a ratio of 20 attendees to 4 trainers you can guarantee you'll make rapid progress.
