PLEASE NOTE THE EARLIER THAN USUAL START TIME
The workshop starts at 6:30pm (doors open a little earlier, we aim to start by 6:35pm).
Please register to let us know you’ll be attending, we will need to give your name to reception.
For this month’s session, we’ll be running a beginner’s workshop on building and deploying Clojure web applications.
Although you don’t have to be an expert programmer, some familiarity with another programming language, and a bit of experience with using tools like Git will be useful. If you don’t have that, then don’t worry, just install the pre-requisites below and sign up.
We’ll go through some common toolchains for building Clojure web applications and then build and deploy a simple example on Heroku.
After that, we’ll look at how you can add templating, and how REPL-driven development works for web applications.
By the end of the workshop you should have a small web application deployed to Heroku.
As the session is a workshop format, attendees will need to bring their own laptop. Please ensure that you have:
Installed Clojure, preferably via Leiningen
Installed the Heroku toolbelt
Cloned this repo to your laptop
This event is generously sponsored by Dunnhumby, a world leader in consumer data science and a heavy adopter of Scala.
(Again, please register to let us know you’ll be coming!)
