Meetup Preview: Onyx – distributed computation for the cloud

OnyxMetail is hosting the next meetup of Cambridge NonDysfunctional Programmers next Thursday, 17th March. This month we’ll be taking a look at Onyx, a distributed cloud computing platform implemented in Clojure. We’re currently using Cascalog to process data on a Hadoop cluster, and are considering Onyx as a possible alternative. It will be interesting for us to hear what our local Clojure community makes of this new kid on the block.

One of my favourite talks at the recent Clojure Remote conference was Michael Drogalis’s keynote, where he discussed some of the principles behind Onyx’s data-driven API. At the Meetup, we’ll watch Michael’s Onyx talk from last year’s Clojure/conj. After the video, we’ll work through the getting started guide and tutorial together. Please see the Meetup page for full details.
