Hello guys, could someone please update a description of meetup event? Looks like Edu has busy time now 🙂

r00z 2016-06-02T07:47:03.000386Z

Here is a desciption: Bitcoin and Blockchain are quite popular topics nowadays. There is a lot of hype and investment around these technologies. There are not a lot of libraries and frameworks that could be used in Clojure for experiments and projects related to a Blockchain. But due to a nature of a Blockchain, as a sort of immutable database of transactions, - Clojure could be a perfect match for it. Plan of a talk: 1) I'll give short introduction to a blockchain and bitcoin. 2) I'll tell about my experiments with Freecoin - Complementary currency toolkit in clojure 3) Demo Many thanks to Kunstmaan for hosting this event! Igor Ruzanov, Software developer

@r00z: yes - will do

r00z 2016-06-02T08:03:06.000391Z

thanks, Ray!

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T09:16:20.000392Z

It’s done

@raymcdermott: for your report, setting :pedantic? :abort in leiningen helps identifying conflicting dependency resolutions

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T10:43:07.000395Z

@stijn: oh, I didn’t know about that I will check - thanks

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T11:02:27.000396Z

@stijn: funnily enough I was complaining that the tools should be able to help with this, after all they know when there is a conflict … and I was right but didn’t know how right, which is nearly useless!

stijn 2016-06-02T11:30:11.000397Z

it's the first thing I do when creating a new project: updating that setting 🙂

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T11:35:36.000398Z

just ran it and, yes it would have saved a few clumps of hair!

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T11:35:58.000399Z

is there a lein template where it is non by default?

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T11:36:07.000400Z

is on

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T11:36:30.000401Z

anyway, yes - awesome tip!

stijn 2016-06-02T11:38:10.000402Z

I don't know, I'm not that much into lein templates

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T11:38:15.000403Z

only slight issue is that it recommended dropping the later version but actually it was necessary to drop the earlier version

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T11:38:26.000404Z

but that’s not a biggie

stijn 2016-06-02T11:38:32.000405Z

yes, I don't know why it does that

stijn 2016-06-02T11:38:50.000406Z

anyway, there's a risk in both dropping the older or newer version

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T11:39:16.000407Z

indeed - definitely one that has to be tried out

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T11:42:27.000408Z

I updated the issue BTW

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T12:40:18.000409Z

I had a look at the lein FAQ and it seems to pick the version closest to the root

raymcdermott 2016-06-02T12:42:15.000410Z

Which seems to be a more subtle heuristic than ‘latest’ which seems more obvious - maybe the proximity heuristic has a higher success rate in the general case.
