Hello! I'm Colton. I'm here to learn Clojure mainly because I'm looking to get better at programming and eventually find a Clojure job. I'm at a dead-ish-end programming job now (proprietary language with some C#, JavaScript, & SQL) where I don't have any mentors and I feel myself stagnating. I've done a tiny bit of Brave Clojure but coming from the Microsoft development world I am still puzzled at how I'll build actual applications with Clojure.

Hi @U02CV35U6AH. I've similar background and very recently found Clojure. Coincidentally, I even started with Brave as first resource :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:. I'm currently building a small manga reader using ClojureScript (Its about ~200 LOC big). If I'm understanding your problem right, I think I can help you with beginner stuff that I encountered myself. I'm using the project as a playground right now, maybe you want to join in? Let me know.

@U029PC2K1HV hey thanks for the message and offer for help. I'm interested in joining in. I can try reading the code and seeing if I understand what's going on.

@U02CV35U6AH you're welcome 🙂. Can you share your Gitlab id, I'll add you. Word of caution - like I said it is a playground so it is opposite of a good clojure project/code right now (but it works). It is not https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse3.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.ymiid09Pt0nnfLCC7vb83wHaE8%26pid%3DApi&amp;f=1 but https://hoodwork-production.s3.amazonaws.com/uploads/story/image/35646/apgar-fire-2.jpg. I was thinking more along the line of - we get on a screen share, I give a short walk-through, you ask anything you don't get.
