London Clojurians Talk: High Performance Data With Clojure (by Chris Nuernberger)

[Connection details will be shared 1h before the start time]

The London Clojurians are happy to present:

Title: High Performance Data With Clojure
Speaker: Chris Nuernberger
Time: 2021-06-08T17:30:00Z
Local time: 18:30 op dinsdag 8 juni 2021 in Londen, Verenigd Koninkrijk - (click here for local time)
RSVP: High Performance Data With Clojure (by Chris Nuernberger) | Meetup

Chris Nuernberger (cnuernber (Chris Nuernberger) · GitHub) will be presenting
a talk about his work with dtype-next (GitHub - cnuernber/dtype-next: A Clojure library designed to aid in the implementation of high performance algorithms and systems.)
and (GitHub - techascent/ A Clojure high performance data processing system)
the new high performance data processing system for Clojure. His talk
will cover the axiomatic basis of array programming, some interesting
high performance primitives, and how representing your problem with a
column-major map-of-arrays design gives you some interesting
properties as compared to your standard Clojure row-major
sequence-of-maps design.

Chris got his start programming high performance 3D graphics in the
early 2000’s. He has worked extensively in GIS, 3D graphics, and
machine learning building such things as graphical playback-style
debuggers for physics simulations systems, Cinema 4d-style graphics
editors, GIS tools including research into (at the time) new lossless
compression technologies and national scale facial recognition
systems. He started playing with Clojure in 2008 and has been working
in Clojure full time since 2015.

Thanks for making all of these events happen, and for posting recorings! I’ve enjoyed a few on Youtube.

Gald that you are enjoying them.


I want to second that. London Clojurians has been consistently outputting stellar material. This is a huge corpus we’ll only be able to properly appreciate in retrospect


looking forward to this one! It really connects with a lot of my own interests.

looking forward to this talk tomorrow :blush:

Hi all,

here is the recording of this event:


Excellent job moderating, organizing, and guiding discussion Bruno. I find these talks extremely useful. I think shifting away from formal conferences to informal remote meetups is invaluable.


Thank you for the kind words.

Was the discussion Q&A afterwards recorded?

We typically have an open discussion before the talk starts while we are waiting for the people to join, then after the talk, there is Q&A session which typically is not in the recording.
