GSoC: Week 7/8 - Clojure Berlin & Google Closure compiler
Writing those posts still takes me some time since writing doesn't come natural to me. Or maybe it's because English is not my first language. So, I didn't write a post for week 7, because I already spent some time on preparing slides about GSoC, and wanted to use the rest of the time for coding. Long story short, I now have a more time again, so here goes the post for week 7 and 8 ;)
I was in Berlin during the last couple of weeks. During this time I was lucky enough to meet some great people (Malwine, Martin and Jelle to only mention a few) from the Berlin Clojure community and gave two talks about GSoC and my project. The first talk was a short lightning talk at the Clojure Bridge Berlin workshop and was intended to inform the attendees about the GSoC program and motivate them to apply. I've also managed to sneak some ClojureScript into the talk and tried to explain what ClojureScript is about :)
The second talk was at the Clojure Berlin Dojo meetup and was more focused on the project itself rather than the GSoC program. Personally, I wasn't sure if I put too much/little detail into the talk, but people seemed to be interested, since there were some questions afterwards. Overall, it was really great meeting people I've only known from the Internet so far and everyone was as nice and welcoming as they are online.
