Tuesday, November 18 - Wednesday, November 19 - INTRO TO CLOJURE TRAINING

9:00-5:00 PM



Who Should Attend?

This course is for anyone who has an interest in learning the Clojure programming language. The course is geared toward participants with programming experience but it does not assume any prior knowledge of Clojure or functional programming.

Daily sessions alternate between lectures and lab work, and you should expect several hours of direct programming practice with instructors circling through participants to answer questions and encourage new practices.

What Will You Learn?

DAY 1: Basic Clojure

  • Clojure Rationale

  • Basic Syntax

  • Evaluation and the REPL

  • Files and namespaces

  • Flow Control

  • Functions

  • Collections

  • Sequences

DAY 2: Advanced Topics

  • Concurrency: software transactional memory, atoms, refs, core.async

  • Polymorphism: protocols, records, and multimethods

  • Macros

  • Mixing Clojure and Java

  • Performance Tuning

Attendees should bring a laptop with the following software already installed:


Wednesday, November 19, 2014 - DATOMIC TRAINING

9:00-5:00 PM

What is Datomic?

Datomic is a database of flexible, time–based facts, supporting queries and joins, with elastic scalability and ACID transactions. Datomic can leverage highly–available, distributed storage services and puts declarative power into the hands of application developers.


Who Should Attend?

Familiarity with either Java or Clojure is recommended. For interactive development, familiarity with Clojure's REPL is helpful. Proficient users of other JVM languages should be able to follow along via their languages' Java interop and interactive shell (e.g. JRuby's irb) features, but these languages won't be directly addressed in the course instruction.

What Will You Learn?

This day–long introduction to Datomic includes the following topics:

  • Datomic architecture

  • The entity-attribute-value-time data model

  • Schemas and data modeling

  • Querying with Datalog

  • ACID transactions

  • Transaction functions and enforcing constraints
