Smashing first meeting

December 8, 2008

Our first study group face-to-face meeting was a success. Fifteen people came, some all the way from Baltimore, bringing a wide range of experience and interests to Chief Ike’s storied, if slightly wobbly, tables. Philip Fominykh gave a presentation about using emacs and SLIME to hack Clojure, and then we broke down into smaller, informal chats. It was fantastic to meet everyone, and I’m looking forward to working together in the coming months. There’s real excitement about Clojure here in our nation’s capital.

Big thanks to Chief Ike’s Mambo Room for making the space and helping us get set up.

Our next meeting will take place shortly after New Years. Information on time/place, as well as format, will be posted here.
