IN/Clojure 2020 is the 4th edition of India’s annual Clojure and ClojureScript conference. Follow twitter.com/in_clojure for updates.

Backstory

We began in Pune in 2016 and after two editions in namma Bengaluru, we’re delighted to come full circle back to apla Pune (and all those delicious bakarwadis and modaks).

As India’s premiere Clojure and ClojureScript conference, we strive to facilitate the free exchange of ideas between new and experienced programmers alike.

Over the years, IN/Clojure has served as a platform to kickstart a series of Clojure workshops and meet-ups across the country. And it has helped attendees make a strong case for Clojure, and Clojurescript adoption in their companies.

We believe that this edition of the conference, like previous editions will foster the growing Clojure community in Asia.

Who should attend?

Whether you are knee-deep writing macros that write macros, or struggling to escape the beginner’s plateau, or wondering if/why/how to adopt Clojure in your organization, or are in it purely for the joy of learning, IN/Clojure is the event bringing together a great mix of Clojure/Script masters, practitioners, and newcomers from across India and beyond.

Why Attend?

We welcome you to join nearly 149 other people and…

  • Speak: CFP is open till 20 Jan 2020.
  • Learn: We run two all-day hands-on Clojure workshops. Check ‘em out here.
  • Converse: Derive some sweet cerebral expansion from the talks, the tweetstorms, and the “hallway tracks”.
  • Inspire: Trade notes, ideas, tools, and techniques with new and experienced Clojure programmers alike (photostream).
  • Be Inspired : Start that project, that meetup, that hack night, that business, that beautiful work of art.
  • Sponsor: Help foster the growing Clojure and FP community in India/Asia.
  • Network: Meet seasoned practitioners and awesome sponsors (listed below). Hire or get hired. Acquire or get acquired ;-)
  • Grab: Some cool swag, and some fun swag, and some zany swag.
  • Party: Eat, drink, and make merry with some of the nicest people around.

Plus, this year we enjoy the company of the perennially effervescent Bozhidar Batsov; prolific Clojurist, Emacs fanatic, maintainer of CIDER, and Lisp hacker extraordinaire.

(Oh, and tickets are going, going, going… grab yours while stocks last.)

From Lazy Lisper to Confident Clojurist

Submitted Nov 19, 2019

The Clojure community is filled with really smart people, with great ideas writing very few tutorials and less documentation. At times it can be quite intimidating and discouraging. This talk is about how you can build your skill and confidence as a Clojure developer. As well as my journey from Pixie, to Hylang and eventually Clojure.

We’ll unpack how build your own path to Clojure confidence as well as some of the things I’ve learnt in my journey from being a lousy, lazy lisper to coding confidently to writing Clojure for the financial sector. It’s gonna be a goodie. All skill levels welcome. See you there!

Outline

The best way to build confidence is to make something you are proud and that the world can see. In this talk we’ll go on the journey from Clojure beginning to publishing on Clojars in a very down to earth way.

I wandered in the dark for a long time before I started to grow as a Clojure developer. Looking back the three things that made a difference where the people I followed; writing code I was passionate about and that was useful to me; and access to really good podcasts and books. The people to follow, books to read and projects to take on differ for everyone. We’ll unpack how build your own path to Clojure confidence.

We’ll also go through some of the practical tips I’ve learnt in my journey from being a lousy, lazy lisper to coding confidently to writing Clojure for the financial sector. It’s gonna be a goodie. See you there.
