Clojure & CFML Sitting In A Tree
Join us for the July 24th BACFUG meeting with presenter Sean Corfield.
World Singles has been using CFML for over a decade but in the last couple of years has decided to add Clojure to the mix, to tackle some of the interesting issues you can face when you have millions of users and many gigabytes of data to process. World Singles has been using Clojure in production for over a year now, alongside CFML. This talk will introduce some of the concepts behind functional programming, offer a brief overview of the Clojure language, and show how well it integrates with CFML to provide large scale data processing, concurrency, and great performance.

Join us for networking, knowledge and perhaps a little pizza - we look forward to seeing you.
