Morning....don't start channel...just don't!

jasonbell08:11:57

The world right now needs 🤗 so bruce better get himself ready.

jasonbell08:11:51

I’m off back to bed.

glenjamin08:11:26

has anyone here used kotlin? Any thoughts? I keep seeing glowing praise about it

martintrojer08:11:24

its good as a Java++

martintrojer08:11:30

with something semi-sane for NPEs

martintrojer08:11:21

the biggest plus might be extremely good tooling

martintrojer08:11:43

(which is unheard of for all other new languages)

martintrojer09:11:29

Start learning mandarin (and russian), is all I’m saying. The Anglo/American empire finally died today.

agile_geek09:11:05

@martintrojer so not that superfluous then? 😜

martintrojer09:11:20

apparently not 🙂

mccraigmccraig09:11:52

доброе утро

mccraigmccraig09:11:34

though my russian speaking abilities seem to have atrophied far more over 30 years than my french speaking abilities

korny09:11:20

Wouldn’t it be good, in these trying times, if the UK were in some sort of collective with neighbouring countries?

agile_geek10:11:03

I think given the complete lack of substantiated arguments (on both sides of the election race) it's quite poetic that the US elected a president whose surname is a synonym for fart in this country! #irony

agile_geek11:11:38

In order to cheer myself up this morning I put on this:

reborg12:11:58

But unfortunately already collected feedback that people don’t see the Lambda in it and they have to ask. On the plus side, great conversation starter.

thomas12:11:53

for some reason I didn't get round to order one... 😞

thomas12:11:08

today would have been a good day to wear it indeed.

minimal13:11:31

i missed it as well

minimal13:11:52

Not sure we’ll be able to lambda our way out of this one though

martintrojer13:11:40

What are the ClojureX Bytes? https://skillsmatter.com/groups/10657-clojure-bytes Not sure about the relationship with ClojureX mentioned there

practicalli-john16:11:31

@reborg The ClojureX Bytes was an idea by SkillsMatter to run a few events in the run-up to ClojureX. Unfortunately they didnt get speakers for the first event and they havent added any speaker details for the event on the 24th November yet.

practicalli-john16:11:33

We are also struggling to get speakers for our regular London Clojurians talk night as well... It seems unlikely we will have a talk events now until February 2017

reborg17:11:41

jr0cket thanks. Ah really no talks for the old good clojurians night? I can always find something interesting to talk 🙂 do you still go through the trello thing?

dominicm18:11:48

@jr0cket The ClojureX email that just went out should have mentioned the Bytes.
