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 achieved¬†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.

Agile Staffordshire – October 2012

A quick post about Agile Staffordshire. There is a session on Thursday 25th October 2012 at the Pie & Ale House in Stafford. This month it is the Minisculus challenge. I shall not provide details here as the group blog has it all.

I hope you can make it. Come along, it’s a great way to meet a lot of people interested and practicing agile development techniques in the local area. It’s an open forum with participants from industry, academia and of general interest.
