W00t! Got an internet connection that runs faster than 2K per min this morning so I can talk to ppl and look at cirriculum!
I have an incredibly busy day in work (deadlines that we are struggling to meet) so I'm likely to be setting up my environment alongside the attendees tonight!
FYI I'm picking up my friend from KX at 6pm so I expect we will be there tonight between 6:30-6:45pm assuming trains behave themselves.

I tried that sample user behaviour snippet in the LightTable set up...don't like the font used there at all!

@/all teachers / ta's : remember to increase your font size, so attendees can see your code examples clearly. Font size & family is set in User Behaviours - see the ClojureBridge London website for an example
@chrishowejones I use the "Ubuntu Mono" font for LightTable, this would need to be installed for Mac & Windows from http://font.ubuntu.com/. Some people like the Source Code Pro font also.

Teachers / TA's: I have a short presentation on "Guiding people into Clojure" which you may find useful in your preparations. This is from the ClojureRemote.com conference last week.

Cool, so you dont need to use your own laptop them? That saves a little time, thanks.

@/all I have updated the LightTable user.behaviour settings section of the main ClojureBridgeLondon website. Most of what we suggested previously is part of the user.behaviours file, but commented out. I recommend uncommenting all but the tab settings option. At the bottom of the ClojureBridge London, there is a setting to have the workspace (where projects / files are show) be shown by default, please also add this to the LightTable user.behaviours

@jr0cket I might be a bit later than 6:30 but shouldn't be too much later. I have to pick up my friend from KX and her train gets in about 6pm if it's on time.

@jr0cket I've not had a moment to prepare anything to demo, I'm afraid :(

I can extend my demo if we're stuck. Or we can have less demo.

@jarohen we have 3 demos (Chris, Phil & myself) so we should be good... I can do LightTable and a quick bit of flappy birds, so that would make 4 demos

I have a high dpi screen on linux, and lighttable looks really tiny as a result. does anyone know how to fix this?

I found the answer! [:app :lt.objs.app/set-default-zoom-level 3.0] in user behaviours

turns out that java 6 isn't enough. you need at least java 7, ideally java 8
