We're on the 5th floor. The doors lock around 6. Look for the sign with the phone number if you can't get in.



Have you ever wanted to extend your Clojure talents to the desktop? Turned off at the thought of digging into Swing or building native shims around your beautiful functional code? Then look no further than Github's Electron, a cross-platform toolkit for desktop apps using familiar Javascript techniques, which of course we can make much more fun and powerful with Clojurescript. Learn how to build desktop apps with all the custom menus, system notifications, and badges you've come to expect, right from your REPL.
