Hi all. Saying hello after lurking for a week or two. I'm in Edinburgh, working remotely with Python and slowly picking up clojure for fun.
yeah, it was disappointing. I've considered heading further afield to attend some of the interesting meetups. being remote makes that fairly easy.
Yeah that’s a shame, it can be hard to sustain groups for niche languages… Perhaps there are some edinburgh functional programming groups that you can crash though 😉
We had a similar issue in Manchester which led me rebranding the clojure-dojo after a few years to Lambda Lounge… Since then it’s been more active.
I seem to remember there were a few edinburgh based companies using clojure, though I can’t remember who they were…
A general FP group would be plenty interesting. Turns out there's an EdLambda, but it's pretty quite these days too.
@accounts_clojurians - I’m over near Aberfoyle (West of Stirling) and would be interested in trying to get something together. Was going to start looking to put together a Clojure Bridge in the New Year as well…
I want to see if I can find enough people and the relevant interest from advocacy groups to get us delegates for a first Clojure Bridge event during next year, so I’ll start with monthly meet-ups if we can get even a handful of interested people together.
@rickmoynihan - We’re up at the top of Strathard, above Aberfoyle, in a little place called Inversnaid actually. It’s paradise up here, and no mistake.
I mean it’s a pain to get anywhere - takes me a good 50 mins to an hour to get to Stirling and about an hour and a quarter into Glasgow if the traffic is good and over an hour and a half to Edinburgh, but it’s TOTALLY worth it. 🙂
Small village in west yorkshire called Marsden at the top of a dirty great hill with views in the peak district national park.
Probably most famous as Royston Vasey… The location of the local shop for local people is a few hundred meters from our house.
@guy I think a monthly distributed "meetup" in our timezone would be a great idea
I know there's one online Clojure group, but it's based in the US and generally meetup around 2am our time which I'm sure doesn't work for most people
I'd be willing to try orchestrate an online meetup via something like Google hangouts or http://appear.in if there was enough interest
I was thinking like a topic for discussion with maybe a guest leading the initial session with some demo etc and then break out for general discussion or "pair/group programming"
We could even take an open source project (maybe something maintained by a group based in the UK) and have a talk/demo of it and then for the latter part, attempt to tackle an open ticket on the project as a group? This way we'd be learning whilst giving back to the Clojure community
would be up for discussions/talks/demos… never really got on too well with group hackathon/katas personally
well that might just be me 🙂 I wouldn’t want to discourage others from doing it 🙂
I suppose those that don't want to do a group Hackathon style thing don't need to do the last part?
my main issue with them in meetups is that most the time is spent setting people up etc…
@rickmoynihan too much like real life? I couldn't watch the UK version of The Office for the same reason when I worked at Equifax
Welcome @accounts_clojurians! I'm a clojurist in Edinburgh (well Dalkeith actually). Maybe we could pimp clojure at a few of the functional meetups and instigate an install fest with beer and pizza.
