How Lucky Sort uses Clojure

Dan from Lucky Sort will tell us about how they use Clojure.


The first section will be focused on answering a few "why?" questions:
- Why we chose clojure in the first place
- Why we enjoy using clojure
- Why we're excited about continuing to use clojure in the future

The second will get down into more of the nitty gritty ("how?"):
- Overview of where we're using clojure
- Specific problems that we think are particularly nice to solve with clojure

Time permitting the final section will cover things such as Fogus's Frake clone, core.match & core.logic, reflex, the incredible succinctness of lein & lein-core, this general-case bezier curve macro I wrote that I'm overly fond of.



As always, pizza and drinks will be provided by Simple.

    I have a question re the Hadoop pipelines presented. Does Hadoop create intermediate data on disk that gets thrown out in the end? I'm thinking that maybe there's an analogy to deforestation transformations used in some language compilers. If so, could you write pipeline macros to get rid of some of that intermediate data? Just a thought ...

    A good talk that convinced me Clojure is a worthy tool for heavy-duty apps.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
