The Cambridge (UK) Clojure Meetups have become an informal but regular occurence, weekly on Tuesday evenings at 8pm in the Kingston Arms. I’ll be there next Tuesday.

There’s also a camclj google group set up for discussion.

PeekORE on bitbucket

September 17, 2009

A while ago, Andrew Walkingshaw and I knocked together a JQuery based tool for visualizing ORE objects in web pages, with the working title of PeekORE. In response to a request from Daniel Gonzalez I’ve finally put PeekORE on bitbucket with an MIT license.

I was scheduled to talk about Maven, but popular demand led me to knock together a very quick intro to Clojure.

My clojure presentation was partly the usual soapbox about why functional languages are necessary to allow most programmers to cope with multicore machines, but mostly a quick look at some very simple code.

For the record (and since I wrote ’em, so I might as well publish ’em, here are the slides for the presentation I didn’t give, and the movie of the jetty plugin in action.
