Hi Robin. Nothing much usually happens in this channel. Probably quite similar for a lot of the other country channels.
In my experience usually particular country activity comes from MeetUps, that happen monthly, where people see each other face to face and gives talks.
I really come from Australia. I don't know that the whole 'Meetup' (or really just having special interest group clubs) thing is big in say Manila. You would probably know more...
Yeah, I've heard a clojure meetup before here in Phils, but it's on different island
Adelaide is too small for a Clojure group. Sydney just the right size, and most work in the city so it is easy for them to pop in after work. Free beers and that sort of thing help...
Okay you are in Mindanao now. I'm in Manila. I have employed and worked with Filipinos in the past with Java.
Hopefully one day it won't be Java but Clojure. Clojure ppl have to be self-starters I feel, like really quite keen. And that is a good thing if you are lucky enough to be in a position to employ people.
In my experience - all I would say is that next time I would check which University the person came from. It was my first time hiring and paid I some applicants to do some work, then picked the best one I thought.
Yes - people who can think out of the box will be attracted to Clojure, do it as a hobby, then be great candidates, no matter which University they went to.
No - it is even difficult in Sydney. Place to be would be the US - San Francisco say.
I still have a small business ticking over paying some bills. But essentially I'm a hobbyist at the moment too.
Yeah Russia, Israel, Europe all over people are picking it up. But Scala is better marketed to the corporate sector, it seems to me.
ah yes, I've heard Scala usually better in surveys compared to Clojure, but Clojure got the highest paid said on surveys too!
I've given some talks at the Sydney one. Will be keen to meet up. If ever you are in Manila or I in Davao, we should meet up.
