Details

For this Christmastime Meetup, Kevin Beaty will be teaching us about transducers! If you're not sure what transducers are, heres a brief explanation:

Transducers are composable algorithmic transformations. They are independent from the context of their input and output sources and specify only the essence of the transformation in terms of an individual element. Because transducers are decoupled from input or output sources, they can be used in many different processes - collections, streams, channels, observables, etc. Transducers compose directly, without awareness of input or creation of intermediate aggregates.

Still confused? Great. Come and let Kevin teach you the ways!

Kevin currently works at LI-COR with previous stints at Nanonation and i2rd (now VentureTech). He's used JavaScript on and off since the late 90s. His github (https://github.com/kevinbeaty) is filled with libraries about Transducers, so we know this will be good. You can also find Kevin blogging on his website (http://simplectic.com/) or on twitter (https://twitter.com/simplectic).
