The resurgence of interest in functional languages is often linked to their superior handling of concurrent and parallel environments, a crucial feature to exploit the increasing number of CPU cores in standard hardware. Clojure contains a few facilities to produce parallel code, but these tools are low level and not easy to use properly.
In this talk, Renzo is going to present the parallel version of the most common functions in the standard library and show what challenges are involved. Can you take parallelism "all the way" and speed-up your applications without too much effort?
