Our next meeting is on Monday 21st January at Co-op Digital’s offices at Federation House (2 Federation Street, Manchester, M4 4BF).


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!)
