This is the rescheduled event that was cancelled due to weather.
Appearing in 2007, Go and Clojure are relatively new languages that are growing in popularity and use. For February's meetup, we will hosting two practitioners who will be discussing several language features to make data manipulation and processing more efficient.

Processing Data with Go
As the amount of data we work with on a daily basis grows, we're forced to adapt the technology and processes we use to maintain the same levels of performance. Eric will give a few examples of how we've replaced our traditional means of processing data with some newer, faster languages.
Data Structures with Clojure
A typical experience with Clojure is, "Come for the concurrency, stay for the data structures." Clojure's data structures are persistent, immutable, and performant. In this talk, we'll discuss what they give you, how they work, and what you can do with them.
