Pre-West Prep: Soren Macbeth
Talk: Data Science on Clojure
Soren Macbeth's talk at Clojure/West is about data crunching in Clojure.
Clojure's prowess in the world of data and distributed systems is pretty awesome. This talk is about two open source libraries for crunching lots of data in Clojure. One is called marceline, the other is flambo. Both are wrappers for distributed computation libraries. For background, you may want to watch a talk by Nathan Marz on Storm.
