 Join us Tuesday, 9 June from 7:00-9:00 for Stuart Sierra's presentation:

      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

      Clojure <> is a new Lisp dialect
      developed by Rich Hickey.  Clojure takes lessons from the
      best of Common Lisp and Scheme, and adds new abstractions, a
      rich set of immutable data structures, software
      transactional memory, and tools for managing mutable state
      in a multithreaded environment.  Clojure is compiled
      on-the-fly to Java bytecode, and offers direct and
      convenient access to any Java library.

      Stuart Sierra <> has contributed
      many modules to Clojure's standard library, including a
      testing framework, a code walker, and a macro-based template

      AltLaw <> is a free, open-source,
      full-text database and search engine for federal court
      cases, developed at Columbia Law School.  In the past, this
      information was only available in law libraries or
      commercial database costing hundreds of dollars per hour.
