Meetup – Functional Programming with Clojure

Agile Staffordshire will be hosting an event on Thursday, 29th October at 19:00. Paul Williams will be introducing Clojure.

The event represents a splendid opportunity to get to grips with functional programming, often mistakenly assumed to be a niche, academic language with little practical application. Paul Williams is an adept software developer and always delivers an interesting and informative session.

Further detail regarding the meet-up can be found on the Agile Staffordshire event page. If you are reading this and want to sign up to attend, it can all be achievedĀ from the Meetup event listing. The session is free and the venue is kindly provided by Staffordshire University‘s Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Sciences. I hope to see you there!

Learn vi with Agile Staffordshire

Learning how to use a tool is one of the best value-for-time activities for a software developer. Vi isn’t a new tool; on the contrary it has a long and distinguished history as an editor. There’s a real treat planned this evening with Agile Staffordshire and I encourage you to stop by and join in. Details are available on the Agile Staffordshire Blog.

Jason Underhill and Paul Williams have organised a superb showcase of vi being used in a professional context as a tool for software development. These two know their craft and will definitely have some useful and interesting articles to show you.
