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!

( meeting - Tuesday, April 10, 7:00 PM - DefDoc: An extensible, dynamic document creation system by Rahul Jain )

DefDoc brings together the best of Common Lisp (macros and CLOS), TeX/LaTeX, XML, and CSS to provide a document creation system that allows flexibility at a greater number of levels than any comparable system. Learn how it models and renders documents using the full power of Common Lisp's macros, multiple inheritance, and multiple dispatch to allow your documents to be more maintainable than ever.
