hey @kurt-yagram you should definitely checkout

Carin Meier's talk from EuroClojure about genetic programming with spec

I like your ideas about meetup formats

'clojure battles': I think there's definitely a need for people to know what to choose, because trade-offs are often not documented in libraries

about the experience report, just let us know when you're ready, we'll make sure to plan it asap then

about meetup locations: anyone knows a good place (company, university, ...) in Ghent?

she's a genius! Anyway, having some real-world stuff in the meetings would be really nice. 'clojure lib/tech battles' are definitely one way, but they stay more theoretical (although pretty much fun, probably. However, something like hand-on 'solvathons' - does that word define what it's about? - may be more valuable, if the problem statement/use case is rather generic. I'd say, in the case of solvathons, the person defining the problem should have some code available before starting a session. This makes it way more real-life and not a typical theoretical hand-on session - this sounds like a contradiction, although I don't think it is 😛.

I want to agree, so can you provide an example?

kurt-yagram 2016-12-19T21:11:07.000019Z

An example of a real-life generic problem?
