Ryan NeufeldWhen: October 16, 2014 @ 1:00pm
Back when I was a CS Undergrad at the U of M, I enjoyed learning about Lisp in Programming Languages. Little did I know I'd be working professionally in Clojure–a Lisp-based language–less than five years later. In this seminar, we’ll explore what Clojure is, and what makes it so unique; from its lispy-concision and sequence abstraction, to its dynamism and fantastic concurrency primitives.
Ryan Neufeld is a polyglot software developer, self-employed consultant, and most importantly, an alumnus of the University of Manitoba (B.Sc. Computer Science, 2011). In his spare time, he also writes. This last year he published two books: Clojure Cookbook and Application Architecture for Developers.
