This is a Clojure event. The focus will be on programming in Clojure.
ClojureBridge is a practical workshop for trans/cis women and non-binary people. ClojureBridge is emphatically queer and trans* friendly.
We support people who are new to programming as well as developers who are interested in learning Clojure.

On Friday evening we show examples of what you can do with Clojure and have members of the community sharing their development experiences. Saturday is a day of practical exercises that our coaches will support you through, each step of the way.
Note: If you cannot make the Friday, we can set up a Google Hangout for you to join (so long as you let us know). You should arrive in plenty of time on Saturday so we can ensure your laptop will work correctly with the exercises.
Thanks to our joint sponsors, 8th Light, ClojureBridge can also provide childcare, live captioning and sign language interpretation to attendees who need it during the event. Please let us know about this or any other access needs by answering the question pop up on registration.
Clojure is a modern, general-purpose programming language that can be used to build apps for the web, mobile apps, and even desktop apps. The small syntax of the Clojure language makes it a great choice for those new to programming, or existing developers who want to learn about functional programming.

Each participant requires their own laptop with either MacOSX, Linux or Windows operating system. We help you set up your laptop for Clojure during the Friday evening.
