We are people who live in London and are interested in programming in Clojure.
Currently our main activity is a monthly dojo where we help one another to learn Clojure and provide a chance to code that our day jobs may not allow (although our goal must be to bring the light of Clojure to our benighted workplaces).
The dojos are sometimes proceeded by lightning talks and we do intend to have more talk sessions soon.
There is London Clojurians Google group where you discuss any projects you are working on, any events the user group should be putting on and how much you ♥ Emacs.
Who's part of this group?

Featuring John Stevenson
Emacs has always provided full support for Clojure and is also a very lightweight and fast tool for programming in a range of languages.
Spacemacs is a community-driven project that provides a simple way to add lots of extra functionality to Emacs, without having to manage packages yourself or...functional clojurescript repl melpa emacs spacemacs clojure
London Clojurians Meetup
Featuring Rahul Phulore
Akar is a pattern matching library for Clojure, with focus on simplicity and abstraction. Akar patterns are just functions. This makes them simple-as-pie to use, abstract over, and reason about. In this talk, we will understand from ground up how Akar is built, how it is supposed to be used, and...clojure functional-programming

Featuring John Stevenson
This is a workshop to help you give a talk on a technical subject, with empasis on speaking at London Clojurian meetups and our Clojure Exchange conference in December.
You dont need to be an expert to present, as hearing what you and your team have done is at least as interesting and often more...clojure functional-programming
Educational Recommender Systems in Clojure
Featuring Abby Sassel
In this talk you will get a brief introduction to Recommender Systems and see how a simple content-based recommender system might be built, before demoing an educational recommender system that Abby has been working on. The aim of this was to improve on an old university project by using richer...recommender-system clojure functional-programming
Live demo of Clojure.spec
Featuring Gary Verhaegen
In this quick demonstration of clojure.spec, we'll present how to define a spec, how to use it for type-checking and how to use it for generative testing. We'll also discuss how and when to enable spec checking through function definitions. Along the way, we'll present a few common...functional-programming clojure
