Is programming something you always wanted to try but never got the chance? Do you think the programming world is non-inclusive or it is something too difficult for you? Two workshops at Waag are organised by ClojureBridge as an introduction to the programming language Clojure.
The workshops aims to increase diversity in programming by offering free, beginner-friendly workshops to people from underrepresented groups. Clojurebridge events focus on creating welcoming and inclusive environments so that people of all different genders, orientation, ability, age, ethnic group or class can feel welcome and comfortable in our industry.
Entrance to the workshops is free.
Clojure is a robust, practical, and fast programming language with a set of useful features that together form a simple, coherent, and powerful tool.
Clojure is a dynamic, general-purpose programming language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language, yet remains completely dynamic – every feature supported by Clojure is supported at runtime. Clojure provides easy access to the Java frameworks, with optional type hints and type inference, to ensure that calls to Java can avoid reflection.
