    Abstract (including setup instructions):

    Learn the basics of Clojure through the Clojure Koans, a set of
    exercises designed to introduce you to the Clojure language with a
    fun, fill-in-the-blank style. These start off easy, but things
    escalate quickly, and before long you'll be well on your way to
    Clojure enlightenment.

    Come with a laptop, and be ready to pair up with others who might not
    have brought their computers. You'll need:
    - Java 1.6+, the platform for the Clojure language. You'll want the
    JDK (not just the JRE) to do much real Clojure programming
    - Leiningen, the Clojure build tool (install instructions here:

    Feel free to use git to clone the koans from github ahead of time
    (, but you won't
    need git to do these - we'll also have a few zip drives with the
    latest version of the koans to pass around the room.

    He’s an active participant in the Clojure open source community,
    including work on the Clojure Koans, REPLy, Leiningen, and small
    contributions to Clojure itself. And most recently, he wrote Mastering
    Clojure Macros (,
