This is a Clojure event. The focus will be on programming in Clojure.
ClojureBridge London is a fun, free and friendly workshop for all those who identify as women or non-binary gender. The workshop is suitable for people just starting to code, or people on their first language who are Clojure curious.
We have 3 suggested learning paths all of which are supported by our coaches:
NOTE: Please make sure you select the Friday evening event in the RSVP form, so we know you are attending that part of the event. If you cannot make Friday please leave that part unchecked and we will stream the presentations to you via YouTube or similar service.
Saturday we coach you through a day of small practical exercises, building responsive websites or creating simple games. We aim for 1-2-1 coaching so we can support you each step of the way.
For more information, please take a look at the ClojureBridge London website

Functional Works are breaking down the barriers of hiring the right software engineers and providing a platform for managing the whole process (written in ClojureScript).
If anyone is interested in volunteering as a coach, take a look at the workshop content and if you understand the basic Clojure we cover then you can coach. Coach training is provided around a week before the event
