Thursday, June 7, 2018 Applying Clojure's Principles to Its Culture w/ Tom McTighe

308 SW 2nd Ave Fifth Floor
Portland, OR 97204, US (map)
Public WiFi

We're on the 5th floor look for a sign with a phone number if the doors are locked.



Portland has a fairly lively Clojure ecosystem -- how can we leverage that base and become a hub of Clojure culture?

The biggest opportunity appears to be in helping newcomers connect the dots. The language was designed to be clear, consistent, practical, and empowering -- this talk will explore how we can apply those principles to support the local scene and create an onboarding model other groups can use.

Bring your gripes and ideas.

Bio: New to the language and somewhat obsessed, Tom has worked as a writer, editor, and programmer. He hosts the Tuesday night Clojure Study Crew, and is currently building what he hopes will be the next best Clojure documentation tool.
