Executing Clojure s-expressions on Hadoop

This Thursday (May 24th), we’ll have our monthly Clojure lunch club and David McNeil from Revelytix will be talking about working with Clojure and Hadoop.

Brief description:

This informal talk will describe an approach for running queries as Hadoop Map/Reduce jobs from Clojure. The talk will cover:

  • representing queries as s-expressions in Clojure
  • brief introduction to the Cascading library
  • compiling s-expressions into Cascading flows
  • storing semantic data in Hadoop

The Clojure lunch club meets on the 4th Thursday of the month at 11:30 am in the Revelytix offices.  The office is located at 680 Craig Rd, Suite 106, Creve Coeur 63141.  Lunch is provided!
