Setup instructions

You will need java to work with this workshop content.

First check if you have Java 11. You can do this by running the following command: java -version

If Java is not installed please register at this link and download it for free from the following link. https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk11-downloads-5066655.html

You can verify that java has been installed properly by running the following command java -version

We have not tested this project with Java versions other than Java 11 hence it is highly recommended that you have this one installed

Leiningen

Follow Leiningen setup instructions mentioned here: https://leiningen.org/

Fire up a REPL by running the following command lein repl. This should give you a repl prompt. Enter (+ 1 2) and press enter. You should get back 3 as the result.

Additionally run lein --version to ensure that the correct version of lein has been installed.

This project is tested with Leiningen 2.9.1. It is highly recommended that you use the same version.

WARNING This project will break with Leiningen 3.0.0 or higher
