ClojureBridge London - Enhancing the curriculum

Tuesday, 4th July at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by The London Clojure Community in July 2017


ClojureBridge London - Enhancing the curriculum

At this event we will collaborate on the next version of the ClojureBridge London curriculum, enhancing how we teach students and get them excited about a career in software.

A enhanced version of the curriculum using Gitbook, Klipse & Reagent has been started at:

To contribute, a little bit of Clojure knowledge (or Google searching) is all that is required. Content contribution is in markdown and Clojure code examples

Feedback on how easy the material is to understand and how challenging exercises are to solve is also very welcome.

  • Identifying fun ways to introduce functional concepts (eg. map reduce sandwich)

  • Identifying exercises to add

  • Creating an example that can be used throughout the course (eg, a profile app)

  • Identifying excerises to remove / replace (eg. examples with mutable state)

  • Discussing if testing & TDD should be included, reviewing examples

  • Having a set of failing tests (commented) and get all tests pass by end of day

  • Identifying coding kata that could be useful to add (eg most recent list)

  • Any other related ideas welcome

Simple instructions on how to set up your own content authoring & testing environment will be provided.
