Better Living Through Clojure

MIT IAP 2014
Bhaskar Mookerji, Aysylu Greenberg, David Greenberg
Dates: January 14, 7:00 - 9:00PM; January 15 7:00 - 9:00PM in 4-231

Clojure is a general-purpose language with seamless Java interoperability, a modern Lisp dialect, and a rich set of immutable, persistent data structures. Elegant and powerful, Clojure aims to reduce the incidental complexity of software engineering by making functional programming practical and accessible.

The first class introduces Clojure's philosophy, Lisp syntax, and primitives for expressive functional programming on immutable collection types. In the second class, we'll overview some libraries for production-quality programming in a few areas: parsing, concurrent programming, distributed databases, and graph and dataflow programming.

The class will be interactive, with an emphasis on functional problem solving, so bring a laptop. Check the webpage for updates at the beginning of IAP!



Thanks for attending! Aysylu's put the slides on slideshare.
