Clojure Training Nov 6-8 2011

Clojure Training Nov 6-8 2011


Back in our Jfokus cast, Neal Ford was really passionate about Clojure. This made me very interested as well. Our friend over at MavenThought is delivering Clojure training up here in Wonderful Winnipeg! For all you Minneapolis folks this is a simple drive, just head North until you see something resembling a City. In Fargo or Grand Forks? Even closer. Elsewhere in the world? We have an International Airport as well.

I'd really like to pack the rafters for this session so my company, Grind Software Inc. will be giving away two tickets to our new (old?) NHL Team The Winnipeg Jets vs. the Florida Panthers on Thursday November 10th! These tickets are unattainable, all games for the season are SOLD OUT. Once you register for the course, you'll be entered for the draw which will take place in class to those able to attend the game.




Register over at MavenThought, or email clojure@maventhought.com if you have questions. Group discounts available upon request.

Episode 43 – Interview with Prashant Deva of Chronon Systems

September 7th, 2011

Prashant Deva is not some hipster "brogrammer". No, he's about as hard-core geek, John Carmack-level coder. He's the fellow that brought us ANTLR Studio, to give you some bearing on his skills. While preparing for this podcast I 1) realized he never sleeps 2) he's very enthusiastic about Chronon.

In this interview Prashant takes us through Chronon which he describes as a 'DVR for debuggers'. That's right, you can actually step through a program that has already run! An invaluable tool for tracking down those nasty production bugs. The product is amazing, it's not a simple gimmick and I believe it will become the de-facto standard for JVM-based production servers.
