At our November meetup, we welcome Robert Avram, who will present an interesting topic: Dynamic Typing in Clojure. After this, we will start hacking in small groups, so please bring along your own laptop with Clojure configured. If you require assistance on this, just ask someone at the meetup to assist to get it up and running.
This meetup can be held in English or German language, depending on the audience’s preference.

Honestly, there’s no denying it. Types truly are useful. Extremism with respect to static typing may be debatable, but both the visible and checked guarantee of a function’s behaviour is a rather invaluable tool. Clojure is by no means devoid of such tools, irrespective of its dynamism. Robert would like to show you the various ways you could “type” Clojure and what you gain, but also what you lose, by doing so.
Robert is a software engineer at REWE Digital and spends some of his time building Microservices in Clojure, and the rest sporadically exploring the world of functional programming. From time to time he also likes to pester unwilling individuals with discussions about it.
