Veröffentlicht am

Talk from EuroClojure 2015 in Barcelona, on the ClojureBridge programming diversity initiative to bring more women and other underrepresented groups into the Clojure programming community. This covers what a ClojureBridge workshop is, why it's needed, and how to run one. The speaker organised the first European ClojureBridge workshop in Edinburgh, and now helps and mentors other people organising them.
