Most Clojurians can come to consensus on two things:
– Clojure is a great language for scalable data processing.
– Mainstream Clojure adoption is difficult.
This talk introduces Pyroclast, a commercial distributed data processing tool built on top of Onyx, and describes its architecture. Pyroclast is built to make Clojurians feel at home when the parens need to be left behind – demo abound!
