Going to Conj Labs

June 15, 2010

Next week, Karl Krukow and I will be going to Conj Labs in Brussels for three days of intense Clojure hacking. It’s going to be great – I’m really looking forward to it!

I’m sure the actual training will be really good, because I know that both Lau Jensen and Christophe Grand are very competent. But perhaps more importantly, having three days away from work and family will allow me to really concentrate on learning Clojure, including all the surrounding stuff.

I have been reading a lot about the language already, so I hope we’ll be covering all the small things that make Clojure a practical language to use (probably more so than Haskell, Erlang etc.). Project setup, unit testing and so on. These are the kinds of things about a new programming language that require a few days to grasp – to actually get a feel for how it is to use the language on non-trivial projects.

By the way, there are still seats available. Anybody want to join us?
