LOOM by Aysylu Biktimirova

Graph algorithms are cool and fascinating. We'll look at a graph algorithms and visualization library, Loom, which is written in Clojure. We will discuss the graph API, look at implementation of the algorithms and learn about the integration of Loom with Titanium, which allows us to run the algorithms on and visualize data in graph databases.

Aysylu is a Software Engineer in NYC area. She graduated from MIT with degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Coming from the Java world, she found paradise in the Clojure land. Aysylu's interests are in performance engineering, compiler design and optimization. In her spare time, she also does oil painting and composes music.

    At the meetup, I mentioned functional graph data structures.
    Here's a summary:

    David Jonathan King wrote a thesis on graph algorithms in Haskell:
    You can find it at:

    Martin Erwig implemented Functional Graph Libraries in ML and Haskell.
    Find them, with a collection of interesting papers, at:
    There's a more recent version of the Haskell library at Hackage:

    The ocamlgraph library supports imperative and functional data structures.
    Find it, along with a paper describing its design, at:

    Thanks for the presentation!

    Aysylu gave a great and stimulating talk, describing several interesting graph algorithms and their Clojure implementation. Aysylu went to illustrated applications of LOOM such data flow analysis in the context SSA compiler techniques. This was an awesome presentation.

    This was a very interesting presentation, and a very creative use of Clojure and Loom for graph analysis

    Will there be a video of it? I'm registered and planning to attend, but I'll give up my spot if I know I'll be able to watch it later. Thanks

    I'm not sure what I'll be doing on Tuesday so I pulled out to free up a spot on the waitlist, but I'd love to see a video.
