Agenda

Please Note: We’ve changed the night from our normal Thursday for this month to take advantage of Sean Corfield’s visit to Melbourne.

Sean Corfield will present using Clojure alongside CMFL.

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.

More information on Clojure and Sean can be found at http://corfield.org/blog/

Date: Tuesday 21 August 2012
Time: 6:30 PM
Location:
CogState
Level 2
255 Bourke Street
Melbourne, VIC, 3000

A note on the door will provide a number to ring for access.
RSVP: Please reply to this post if you are planning to attend so we know how many pizzas to order.

As always, many thanks to Dale Fraser and CogState for their hospitality. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Thanx for being so accommodating about the date change! As noted on cfaussie (when my post gets approved), I'm happy to take the talk in whatever direction folks want on the night and deep dive into any aspect of what we're doing at World Singles. I'm also happy to field questions in advance and take feedback on what folks might want to focus on. Looking forward to seeing you in three weeks!
