CANCELED – Clojure Talk May 12

CANCELED: My presentation is canceled.  LispNYC will still meet at the Sunburnt Cow, 137 Avenue C, and I’ll be there to talk about Clojure.  But no slides, no video, etc.  My presentation is postponed to the June meeting.

I’ll be talking about my work with Clojure at LispNYC on the evening of Tuesday, May 12.   Time and location to be announced.   Slides and (hopefully) video available after the fact.

Possible topics:

  • Why Java + Lisp was such a great idea
  • Using Clojure with Java libraries like Hadoop & Solr
  • Deploying a web server with Clojure and Restlet
  • Clojure libraries I’ve written, such as test-is

Official announcement with time & location:

Stuart Sierra presents: Implementing in Clojure

This talk demonstrates the power of combining Clojure with large Java frameworks, such as:

  • Hadoop – distributed map/reduce processing
  • Solr – text indexing/searching
  • Restlet – REST-oriented web framework
  • Jets3t – Amazon S3
