Talk presented at TheConf, a Brazilian, English-speaking conference organized by CodeMiner: www.theconf.club
Clojure is a highly trending language with many applications. Many programmers have heard of or studied LISP. Are they willing to learn Clojure and Functional Programming?
Can we teach such hipster stuff on 100+-year-old public institutions? Can we motivate students to return to their college after graduating?
This talk will describe the experience of teaching Clojure and Functional Programming on an extension course in IFSP Campinas, a public institution with more than 20 campuses in the São Paulo state.
