(+ tools.trace project-night)

  • August 14, 2013 · 6:00 PM

I put together a little demo of what tools.trace can do and I thought it would be fun to go through it together. tools.trace has very little documentation and I at least found it a little opaque in terms of usage. Over the development of the demo I came up with some nice usage patterns and such that would be worth talking about and if there are any people who have worked tools.trace into your workflow, I'd like to hear about it.

That won't take the whole night, almost certainly, so I figured we could also split off into pairs or something and hack on projects together as well.

    Apologies for having to bail tomorrow. I look forward to future meetings. I'm a statistician who's looking for better ways to interact with hadoop. The amount of boilerplate for Hive and Pig is annoying.

      Not a problem. The folks at Relay have developed a bit of experience using Cascalog and interactive development to drive Hadoop which I have a feeling you'd be very into. Hopefully you can make it out to a meetup soon to pick their brains about it. :)

      I'll definitely come out. I've heard that Cascalog is great for dealing with hadoop.

    Since we briefly discussed both state machines and core.async, I figured I'd post this here since I came across it today: http://hueypetersen.com/posts/2...­

    Best meetup yet. It was a lot more informal, Tim with suggestions from Kyle walked us through a variety of handy tools. We then moved rapid fire in discussion through metaprogramming, maps vs records, clojurescript, and some emacs tricks. Totally worth it.

    Stuck at work for next hour, so not going to make it with traffic. Looking forward to future meetup in CC!

      Sorry you couldn't make it out. We'll definitely try to change up the meeting location every now and then. If you know anyone who I can get in touch with regarding a venue, please let me know. :)

    Just so others don't have to google for this themselves, here's the project on github I presented out of tonight.

    Thanks again everyone for bearing with me through the presentation!

    Had a great night. I loved the informality of this meeting and the more group oriented learning that took place rather than typical eyes forward meetings.

    Just a reminder to everyone that if you're planning on pairing with someone on a project it'd be a good idea to bring a keyboard and mouse and/or be sure that you're all set up for remote pairing over tmux or screen.

    See you all tonight!

    Are there any plans to have some clojure meetings in center city? My company, Azavea, would be happy to host one.

      Interest in a city meetup has been pretty strong in the past. I see no reason we couldn't swing something every now and then. It makes sense to have it at Relay mainly because they're the biggest Clojure shop in our area (that I know of) but Azavea's got the functional gig going as well so it'd be a good fit.

    Will be tough getting out from Center City on time, but will try.
