ClojureBridge Minneapolis, May 16 and 17
ClojureBridge workshops are a free and fun way to get started or to level up with Clojure. Our event focuses on increasing diversity in tech, so people of all backgrounds can feel welcome and comfortable in the industry.
Clojure is a relatively new programming language based on a solid foundation of LISP (over 50 years old) and Java (20 years old). Clojure has become popular as a productive platform for functional programming and is especially suited for handling challenging problems in data science.
Because Clojure removes a lot of the complexity of other languages it's a great way to learn programming. ClojureBridge provides a taste of Clojure that will encourage students to want to learn more!
- May 16, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with social gathering to follow
- May 17, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. including a catered lunch and a social gathering to follow

Who can participate?
ClojureBridge is intended for women who would like to see what

the industry but would like to learn about Clojure. Men are
welcome if they are an invited guest of a woman student.
