    @/all 15 minute warning! please begin winding down so we can start the retro at 4:30. There are still many cookies and rice bowls leftover from lunch (in the fridge beneath the toaster), please take some home.

    The Tommy Hall who graciously sponsored this event is @thattommyhall on Twitter. Here's a cool video of one of his talks if you're interested - http://lanyrd.com/2013/bacon/scrwtt/#link-wmrw

    Retrospective questions:
    1. What did you learn?
    2. What confused you?
    3. What could have been better?
    4. What was the highlight of your day?

    Really worth looking at Functional.tv courses by Eric Normand. The link above links to his courses and you can get them all for free until the end of Feb using the voucher code that appears in checkout after you've purchased.
    For those of you who write web apps in other languages there's a course on web development and one on how to build a Single Page App using the Om library. (FYI Om is soon to be replaced by Om Next which is in Beta but it will teach all the concepts. Reagent is a popular alternative for ClojureScript SPA's you might want to check out too)
    I hope you all had fun....I did! :smile:

    @chrishowejones
    Correction, I've just checked and the link to Functional.tv courses expires 31st March so you have a little more time..do check them out though.

    If you like Eric's work, you might like to let him know on Twitter (@ericnormand). I know feedback means a to him.
    Chris Howe-Jones
    @chrishowejones
    Or if you have criticism (constructive please) I am sure Eric would like to know how he can improve his material.

    I found a small bug with Nightcode on MacOSX, it doesnt detect java is installed when you run nightcode from the MacOSX gui. Nightcode detects java if you run it from the command line /Applications/Nightcode.app/Contents/MacOS/Nightcode
    I've raised an issue on the nightcode repo for this MacOSX gui bug: oakes/Nightcode#194
    John Stevenson
    @jr0cket
    The Nightcode gui launch bug only seems to be an issue on my laptop.
    There are some differences in the latest version of Nightcode than the version used to create the ClojureBridge docs. I'm reviewing how much is different to see if we need to update the docs
    John Stevenson
    @jr0cket
    The ClojureBridge curriculum has been updated to cover the changes in the new version of Nightcode. Note that they suggest Oracle 8 over OpenJDK 8 for using Nightcode.

    Simple method for writing a function by starting with a specific example:
    ;; How to write a function to multiply a number by 4
    
    ;; step 1 - start with a specific example (in this case, 7)
    (* 4 7)
    
    ;; step 2 - wrap the example in (defn [] ..)
    
    (defn multiply-by-4 []
      (* 4 7))
    
    ;; step 3 - replace the specific values with general "arguments"
    (defn multiply-by-4 [n]
      (* 4 n))

    For those interested in attending more programming workshops (free!), my loudest shout out goes to: codebar (codebar.io). It is a great community and many of today's teachers may want to consider attending as a coach :)
    Other great communities that run talks/workshops: Ladies of Code, WWC, Code and Cake, Women Hack for NonProfits, EmpowerHack

    Thanks so much for a fabulous day and a half! You are such generous people and great teachers. It's not often I go on a course and get on line that evening to do a bit more!

    I have pushed a number of content updates to the alternative clojurebridge content. There is still much work to do, but I would welcome some initial comments. Thank you https://clojurebridgelondon.github.io/community-docs/docs/curriculum/

    @jr0cket Morning, completely missed that there was a training session on 3rd of November. I completed one for the previous CB though. Should I fill out the volunteer form at this stage or do you have enough of teachers and TAs?
    pradeepcheers
    @pradeepcheers
    Can some one add me as a TA please?
    John Stevenson
    @jr0cket
    @ernestas yes, if you fill out the volunteer form and come along on Friday that would be great. We can check how many students volunteers turn up on Friday and see who we need for Saturday. Thanks
    Ernestas
    @ernestas
    Nice one! See you on Friday.
    John Stevenson
    @jr0cket
    Same for you also @pradeepcheers . Thanks for helping out again.

    Thanks @jr0cket. See you on Friday :)

    @pradeepcheers if you wanted to volunteer for ClojureX, get in touch with Nicole https://twitter.com/NicoleAtSM/status/801836611839361024

    @pradeepcheers
    @jr0cket Thanks
    Ernestas
    @ernestas
    @jr0cket can't make it today, I doubt that you'll lack teachers/TAs, but if you do, let me know and I will come tomorrow
    John Stevenson
    @jr0cket
    @ernestas yes, we seem fine for volunteers this time around. Thanks for letting us know
