Originally, I wanted to have already launched a quarterly hack-a-thon by this time of year, but I spontaneously signed up for 3 online programming courses which filled my weekly schedule with 60 hours of work. I'm down to 40 hours/week now and will make time to refocus on developing content and activities for our group.
Toward that end, I have announced a local Clojure user group called Clojure Co-Lab here in Columbia, SC which I intend to integrate with our online group, with your gracious help and welcoming vibe. You are also very welcome to plugin your own local groups to this site in any way you find helpful.
I'm learning to set more realistic goals in my learning path and for this group. I estimate we'll be in a groove of quarterly online hack-a-thons by the Summer of 2018.
The other change for now is that I'll be focussed more on doing one-on-one interviews and code reading sessions with experts, where I do lots of work on pre and post production to offer you all high quality learning resources for Clojure and programming. We'll still get together en-masse but more for group projects than presentations. As usual, everything is negotiable, so ping me with ideas when they strike. I expect to start publishing regularly by the New Year, but hopefully a bit sooner. if I can wrap school up on time.
Bit by bit, we learn, together.
