ClojureBridge London - Enhancing the curriculum

4th July 2017 in London at CodeNode

This SkillsCast was filmed at ClojureBridge London - Enhancing the curriculum

This session was not filmed.

ClojureBridge is a world wide community helping bring more inclusiveness into Clojure and the wider developer community.

At this event we will collaborate on the next version of the ClojureBridge London curriculum, enhancing how we teach students and get them excited about a career in software.

A enhanced version of the curriculum using Gitbook, Klipse & Reagent has been started at:

https://clojurebridgelondon.github.io/workshop/

To contribute, a little bit of Clojure knowledge (or Google searching) is all that is required. Content contribution is in markdown and Clojure code examples

Feedback on how easy the material is to understand and how challenging exercises are to solve is also very welcome.

  • Identifying fun ways to introduce functional concepts (eg. map reduce sandwich)

  • Identifying exercises to add

  • Creating an example that can be used throughout the course (eg, a profile app)

  • Identifying excerises to remove / replace (eg. examples with mutable state)

  • Discussing if testing & TDD should be included, reviewing examples

  • Having a set of failing tests (commented) and get all tests pass by end of day

  • Identifying coding kata that could be useful to add (eg most recent list)

  • Any other related ideas welcome

Simple instructions on how to set up your own content authoring & testing environment will be provided.
