yes @tgoossens !! we are missing one for the 100! should we prepare something special to celebrate it? πŸ˜„

haduart 2016-06-06T08:15:08.000009Z

Ideas? 🀘🍻

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T08:31:31.000012Z

@vijaykiran: nice!

vijaykiran 2016-06-06T08:35:39.000013Z

mine fails on seq-caps though - perhaps I should write a gen-test πŸ™‚

vijaykiran 2016-06-06T08:37:46.000014Z

you can always use commons-lang πŸ˜›

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T08:50:50.000015Z

what is the er, spec? πŸ˜‰

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T09:06:23.000016Z

You won by calling it snake though so your naming is better even if the code is not ;-)

vijaykiran 2016-06-06T09:06:45.000017Z

wait - did I call it snake? I think it should be Kebab

vijaykiran 2016-06-06T09:06:59.000018Z

snake = hello_world, yelling snake = HELLO_WORLD

vijaykiran 2016-06-06T09:08:15.000019Z

someone on the internet :

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T09:09:54.000021Z

I watched the keynote from clojure remote by @ztellman and we are not following his advice :(

tgoossens 2016-06-06T09:16:26.000022Z

It has happened! 100 members in beclojure ! πŸ‘ πŸ‘ πŸ‘

I have messaged him (he’s called Arne) on meetup and told him that he will have a special place in our ❀️

danipov 2016-06-06T12:14:46.000029Z

Arne Brasseur?

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:15:02.000030Z

@tgoossens: suggests a monthly video interview with a Belgian clojurian

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:15:16.000031Z

@danipov: yes, that’s the gent

danipov 2016-06-06T12:15:36.000032Z

He is the guy from the Lambdaisland screencasts πŸ™‚

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:15:56.000033Z

send the link

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:16:02.000034Z

I don’t know it

danipov 2016-06-06T12:16:08.000035Z

It s awesome

haduart 2016-06-06T12:17:12.000039Z

@raymcdermott: it could be interesting to do a monthly interview to a clojurian πŸ™‚

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:17:39.000040Z

ok, well that’s the guy … the site looks awesome and it seems like he could give a talk or two!

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:23:35.000041Z

I have tapped him up on the meetup - hopefully he’ll join us here soon

tgoossens 2016-06-06T12:23:57.000042Z

Anyone have suggestions to make high audio quality type of interview over the web ?

haduart 2016-06-06T12:24:46.000043Z

I use skype + screenflow

tgoossens 2016-06-06T12:24:59.000044Z

Maybe we should have an invitation to slack in the welcome message when joining the group

tgoossens 2016-06-06T12:25:30.000045Z

We could do audio only interviews as well of course

haduart 2016-06-06T12:25:52.000046Z

well, with screenflow you can record everythin or just the audio, as you wish πŸ™‚

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:25:57.000047Z

I have made personal messages to the folks joining as of 1st June to join us on Slack

haduart 2016-06-06T12:26:45.000048Z

Have you modified the welcome message? feel free to change it πŸ™‚

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:27:26.000049Z

I haven’t - let me take a look at that

haduart 2016-06-06T12:30:21.000050Z


haduart 2016-06-06T12:31:10.000053Z

sounds good πŸ™‚

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:31:17.000054Z

I’ll fix it up

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:32:17.000055Z

We have a question on the sign up page about training - is that interesting to anyone?

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:32:38.000056Z

some people answer yes … is that followed up?

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:32:55.000057Z

I would prefer to drop the question if not

haduart 2016-06-06T12:36:34.000058Z

At the beginning I though to make more belgian oriented trainings just to promote/speed up the integration of Clojure in Belgium, but we never took any action on it. I'm checking all the replies and almost everyone would like some free training, even if it's online... but it's true that there's a lot of material out there..

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:37:42.000059Z

ok, so let’s drop it then

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:38:17.000060Z

any other questions that we should ask?

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:38:41.000061Z

maybe like do you run a Clojure training web site πŸ˜‰

tgoossens 2016-06-06T12:39:28.000062Z

Ask them for a link to any clojure related topics they worked on

haduart 2016-06-06T12:39:37.000063Z

or maybe more general, are you already contributing with the clojure community (clojure web trainning, open source projects, etc)

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:40:08.000064Z

ok, plus maybe which part of belgium they prefer to meet?

haduart 2016-06-06T12:40:51.000065Z

that's a good one πŸ™‚

tgoossens 2016-06-06T12:40:51.000066Z

Good idea.

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:41:01.000067Z

ok, I’ll fix it now

haduart 2016-06-06T12:41:08.000068Z

thanks! πŸ˜‰

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:44:17.000069Z

all done

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:44:59.000070Z

must really stop slacking now and do some work πŸ˜‰

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:50:27.000071Z

before I go here is a review of recording software

raymcdermott 2016-06-06T12:50:36.000074Z

we use ecamm for the podcast

plexus 2016-06-06T13:23:29.000076Z

hey everyone, congrats on your 100 members πŸ˜„

stijn 2016-06-06T13:24:35.000077Z


plexus 2016-06-06T13:24:40.000078Z

I just signed up to stay in the loop about meetups, I didn't expect it to be a special occasion πŸ™‚

tgoossens 2016-06-06T13:25:00.000079Z

What do you want to know about your fellow clojurians. Give some suggestions for interview questions

plexus 2016-06-06T13:25:56.000080Z

I live in Berlin now but I'm originally from Belgium. I'd love to give a talk some time, I'll be in Belgium a couple times over the summer so maybe we can work something out

plexus 2016-06-06T13:27:51.000081Z

if I can suggest something for the page, the first question you ask when signing up is a yes/no clojure, "Have you ever worked with Clojure before?"

plexus 2016-06-06T13:28:18.000082Z

might be better to make that a more open question, like "What Clojure experience do you have, if any?"
