This wiki page is for suggestions for Clojure/West 2013 "Unsessions". Unsessions give you the opportunity to propose your own topics and find others with similar interests. We'll have several rooms available at the conference hotel (Courtyard City Portland) on the night of Monday, March 18th.

  • When: Monday March 18th, 6-10 pm (1 hour slots)
  • Where: Courtyard City Portland (Sequoia I, Sequoia II rooms)
  • Equipment: A projector and mic will be available in each of the provided rooms. You supply the brainssss.

Please add topics below or note your interest for existing ones. We plan to schedule rooms and times by interest, so sessions without as much interest may not fit!

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2013 planning

  • Hosted by: @deepbluelambda
  • Description: Help students flip bits, not burgers. Do you have a project that could use a little help and wouldn't mind mentoring a student? Are you a student that wants to get paid to develop Clojure? If so, GSoC is an excellent opportunity for you. Clojure/dev participated last year with projects like Typed Clojure and Clojure/Android. This session will be about the GSoC program and preparing Clojure/dev's application for 2013.
