Clojure is a JVM language that has syntatically similarities to LISP, full integration with Java and its libraries and focuses on providing a solution to the issue of single machine concurrency.
Its small core makes it surprisingly easy for Java developers to pick up and it provides a powerful set of concurrency strategies and data structures designed to make immutable data easy to work with.
The goal of the session is to help people learn to start working with Clojure but we hope that more experienced developers will also come along to help form a bit of a London Clojure community.
