The Clojure/West call for presentations is now open - please submit sessions and "unsessions"! The unsessions encompass anything other than a standard speaker+slides setup - some example ideas (feel free to steal these if they don't suck!):
- hack fest to work on koans or 4clojure problems
- a discussion about how to improve Clojure docs
- open session to develop a Clojure style / idiom guide
- a birds-of-a-feather (BOF) about core.logic
- improving the Alioth benchmark results for Clojure
- open session for Clojure user group leaders
- ...whatever other idea you can think of!
Later on there will be a separate call for lightning presentations.
In addition, all of the training class information is now available. There will be four training classes:
- March 12-13 and 14-15 - Clojure Web with Chris Granger
- March 13-15 - Intro to Clojure with Clojure/core
- March 13-15 - Cascalog with Sam Ritchie
- March 14-15 - Pallet with Hugo Duncan and Antoni Batchelli
All of these training classes are offered prior to the conference at separate cost ($1200 for 2 day and $1900 for 3 day). These costs include breakfast, lunch, and breaks. Seating will be limited for all of these classes, so if you are interested, please watch this feed or join the mailing list.

- Sponsorship prospectus
- Keynote and speaker announcements
I am very pleased to announce that the Clojure/West conference has launched! The first edition will be March 16-17th, 2012 at the San Jose Marriott in downtown San Jose. Prior to the conference, several training classes will be available at the same location.
I've been running the Strange Loop conference for several years but by day I've been part of a great Clojure team at Revelytix. I am really excited to put my background in both areas together in creating a new event for Clojure enthusiasts to get together and share their experiences.
The conference will have a mix of traditional keynotes and sessions as well as hack-fests and birds-of-a-feather style gatherings. The call for presentations and registrations will open in December. If you'd like to be notified of either, please join the Clojure/West mailing list! You can also watch this news feed for updates.
