Join The London Clojure Community on December 4th for a series of lightening talks on all things Clojure - featuring Robert Rees on Clojure vs Scala and Philip Potter on Contributing back to Clojure.
Clojure and Scala have both been big hits as next generation languages on the JVM and both make functional programming a major plank in their pitch to developers. However they approaches are quite different. Robert will give a comparison of both the languages and delve into their strengths and weaknesses.
Robert Rees is currently a Developer Manager at the Guardian and the former CTO of Wazoku. He started his career as a tester and went on to be a C and Java developer in telecoms and dabbled in management.
Philip Potter will deliver a lightening talk titled 'Experience report and Q&A on how to contribute code back to Clojure core projects.'
Philip Potter is a Web Operations Engineer for the Government Digital Service. He was a member of the infrastructure team that built GOV.UK, the website of the British Government.
