how'd the meet go last night, @achesnais ?

achesnais08:06:51

Hey @robert-stuttaford ! Went well I think 🙂 Lots of people collaborating/conversing/sharing knowledge! And everyone left with a working Clojure set up 👍

robert-stuttaford09:06:13

looks like install day was a good call

achesnais09:06:00

Yep thanks for the idea 😄

robert-stuttaford10:06:58

what's going to happen next time around, @achesnais ?

theonlysinjin13:06:56

I’m keen to build something

theonlysinjin13:06:17

Maybe revive your game

theonlysinjin13:06:24

Or start from scratch

theonlysinjin13:06:35

7 wonders is a fun game 😄

theonlysinjin13:06:52

cljs frontend with a clj backend?

robert-stuttaford13:06:19

starting from scratch is good, because learning

robert-stuttaford13:06:00

also, our existing code is oooold

robert-stuttaford13:06:12

i wouldn't want to use those libs that way any more XD

biscuitpants13:06:00

we should definitely build something from scratch, that would be super fun

achesnais13:06:01

@sinjin.swanepoel: that’s a cool idea. I’d like to keep a similar format for the meetup going forward, with an emphasis on group work/collaboration rather than 1 person talking.

achesnais13:06:50

so I’d be in favour of several groups working on separate small projects, and we can use meetups for showing off what’s been worked on and code reviews

robert-stuttaford13:06:04

that's a fab idea

achesnais13:06:06

but once again, really depends on what people are keen for

achesnais13:06:02

@sinjin.swanepoel: I also like the idea of adapting an existing game to clj(s) – this way, you get to focus on the code, not on the game mechanics

achesnais13:06:36

@robert-stuttaford: when you guys built your game, any feedback on how the format you adopted for group work worked?

achesnais13:06:39

what even was the format

robert-stuttaford13:06:05

we never seriously got off the ground, unfortunately

robert-stuttaford13:06:21

but basically, teams of 2-4 sat around a machine and built something

robert-stuttaford13:06:33

with everyone declaring what they're building up front
