I shared the exciting news about starting a local Clojure group, Clojure Co-Lab in our previous Community Update. The inaugural meeting was attended by 9 people, all relatively new to Clojure, but with a wide variety of programming backgrounds. It was thrilling to see individuals show up who are just beginning their learning journey because I believe we can save them time and wasteful struggle by providing a well-rounded learning track for them to follow.
Speaking of, I’m pleased to announce the publication of a guide/tutorial for learning to program and learning Clojure that I will write over the next 3 years. Working with newcomers and experienced developers in-person twice a month and online here at least weekly, if not daily, will give me the experience I need to refine this text appropriately for newcomers to the Clojure way of thinking about software.
The site is http://pathwayclojure.org
This is an Open Source/Community Document so please give me feedback by way of Github issues or hallway conversations here or in person. Please keep in mind this is an early draft, so you can “watch” the Pathway Clojure Github Repo for updates as they happen by clicking the repo’s watch button.
Please join me in welcoming our new Clojure and functional programming enthusiasts to our forum. Welcome!
Bit by bit, we learn, together.
