Thanks to Paul for pointing this out: the Pragmatic Programmers training series is offering a 3-day training course in Reston, VA next year (date TBD). Clojure’s creator Rich Hickey and Stuart Halloway will be instructing. More information is at the Pragmatic Programmers site.
It looks like the course will assume you know something about Lisp or Java and functional programming, and possibly concurrency, but nothing about Clojure. It’s going to go well beyond basics, though, and it’s a chance to ask Rick Hickey questions directly.
It’s going to be expensive, with the alumni/group discount rate still a hefty $1195. The early bird price is $1495. I’ve been to the Advanced Ruby course of the same dimensions and cost, and it was worth it. If you all want to join up, 3 or more of us can get the group rate and save a few hundred dollars each.
