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 who are already coding and are Clojure curious.
The next workshop is 21st/22nd February 2020.
We have 3 suggested learning paths all of which are supported by our coaches:
There are also simple challenges, kata and 4Clojure challenges that you can try with support from your coach.
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.
