We'd like to thank Rich Hickey for a great presentation here in New York City on November 10th, 2016

Rich Hickey is best known for creating Clojure, a functional programming language that runs on the Java virtual machine. Rich is also the inventor of ClojureScript, a compiler for Clojure that targets JavaScript, as welll as Datomic which is a fully transactional, cloud-ready, distributed database.

Rich presented Clojure Spec, a new closure library which helps automate Validation, Error reporting, Destructuring, Instrumentation, Test-data generation and Generative test generation

Our sincerest gratitude for an informative and delightful evening!

When Lisp NYC was first formed in 2002 we would meet once a month in bar on the Upper West side for some drinks and intelligent conversation.

In honor of Lisp NYC's 15 th Anniversary we will be meeting this month in an upscale bar in midtown called the Iguana Lounge.

So please join us some food and refreshments and come celebrate Lisp NYC 15th Anniversary with us.
