ClojureBridge was created to introduce women and other underrepresented groups to the Clojure language over a one day workshop, with the aim of increasing the diversity of Clojurian communities. This talk covers the practical steps required to organise a ClojureBridge event, based on the speaker's experience of organising the first European ClojureBridge, and supporting and mentoring other organisers.
This talk will also look at how Clojure might fit into a learner's programming education, and how to maximise the outcomes so that workshop attendees become active members of their local Clojure programming community.
