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.
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!
