Morning everyone! I joined #clojure-uk in the past two weeks while on holiday and didn’t have the chance to introduce myself. My name is Hristo which is the Bulgarian equivalent of Chris but without the “C”. I’m currently in Edinburgh, working for Amazon. Unfortunately not doing Clojure but I look forward to changing that. The EDI Clojure community is pretty quiet, no meetups or dojos, so I found #clojure-uk very refreshing during my holiday!
Hi @hyankov - there were a bunch of Clojure enthusiasts in Glasgow when I was there - you should hook up with them!
Thanks, @guy I was surprised at how sunny it is most of the time. However, it always rains when I have guests. I guess to keep the weather legend alive 🙂
Hi @korny, I remember seeing some Clojure/FP meetups in the area when I moved in but nothing lately. Do you know anyone from the Scottish area in this channel?
I know there are a few folks here up in Scotland, but also Scotland is a bit place with lots of empty space, so I don't know that they're necessarily close to you 😉
That’s true, it’s just me being ignorant and assuming Scotland is just Edinburgh + Glasgow in terms of software development 🙂
@hyankov not sure - I can't see any I remember from the channel members. @malcolmsparks might know more about Glasgow clojurists?
I'm sure if you arranged a meet up in Edinburgh or Glasgow you'd smoke out some of the local community @hyankov
That would be really interesting and educational, I’ve never organized a meet up. Thanks, @malcolmsparks
Hi folks, I’m Joe, long time lurker from Glasgow and was part of Glasgow Clojurians for a while and went to maybe one or two of the Edinburgh Clojurians. Hi @hyankov, unfortunately I think there has not been a critical mass of people in either Glasgow or Edinburgh regularly doing Clojure together for sometime. I am happy to help to try and change that.
Hi Joe! It might be interesting to organize a one-time thing at least to count heads and see if the community has grown. Thanks for offering help, if I decide to do this will definitely reach out!
Hi Hristo. You are welcome. There are a few functional enthusiasts in my work at Skyscanner in Edinburgh. The last Edinburgh Clojurians meet-up I went to was at FanDuel offices in the same building. What I’ll will do is gather interest at work for a meet-up in Edinburgh and report back here to you in a few days. There is also about 150 people in another slack team called DevTechScot (sign up here if you want another Slack in your life 😂 links.devtech.scot/slack) which run other tech meetups in Edinburgh and Glasgow which might be a place to gather other people interested in Clojure and FP in general. Hope that helps.
I am near__ to Glasgow, when I am in Scotland, @hyankov 🙂 *waves from Aberfoyle / Inversnaid*
I am also keen to grow the community a little (or a lot), so let me know if I can help… I am often in London in the working week, sad to say, so I may not be the best example of a “local”, but I am 100% Clojure / ClojureScript at the moment work & play, so keen to meet others up here and get people excited about the language 🙂
Anyone got 5 minutes and the willingness to help with a Recharts / Reagent issue that is driving me mad..?
Sometime ago a reddit user posted his interest in running online presentations and asked for "show of hands" to find the number of interested parties
I asked him I would like to see some "code walk through" or "live coding" sessions on twitch or some other platform
https://twitter.com/apropos_cast may give you a bit of what you are looking for. Its run from out of the USA, so I dont usually watch it live
not entirely sure, but we ended up deleting part of the XML by hand and the import worked fine...
we suspect some of the data in that part was malformed some how (but not the actual XML tags)
@yogidevbear - I have not used it in anger, I have "played" with it for shits and giggles and to decide whether or not to recommend it as a technology choice, but no can't claim properly used it...
It’s a LONG time ago, back end of 2015, perhaps early 2016… Back then my feeling was that it was not ready for primetime. I’ve honestly not kept up with it, so it may be a lot better by now.
I always wondered how to terminate a reduce early, TIL: https://clojuredocs.org/clojure.core/reduced
