We host the London Clojure Community for their monthly meetup. This month the group meet to hear two talks - including Kris Jenkins on the history of Clojure.
In this talk I’d like to introduce Reducers starting from the problem of designing code that runs in parallel over multiple cores. We’ll work our way backward to show the advantages of using Reducers over the plain old map family of functions. I'll finally show a couple of examples.
Renzo is a software developer with more than 15 years of experience. He's being moving between languages but finally got interested in Clojure sometimes around 2010. He's author of the upcoming "Clojure Standard Library Annotated Reference" book by Manning and the "Clojure Pills" screen-cast. He currently work for uSwitch in London.
Work on Clojure began in 1958. Forty-nine years later the first version was released. Well, that's sort of how it went. Join me on a tour through the history of LISP, from its algebraic roots to the present day dialect we know and love.
Kris Jenkins is a successful startup cofounder, turned freelance functional programmer, and open-source enthusiast. He mostly works building systems in Elm, Haskell & Clojure, improving the world one project at a time.
