Clojure, Neo4j and Domain Specific Languages Applied to Lisp and Cancer - Ola Bini in Ham…

The human being is one of the most complicated machines in existence. When things go wrong, they go really wrong, and in order to figure out the solutions only the most powerful technology is sufficient. Based on over a year of applying Clojure, Neo4j and domain specific languages to the problem of cancer, this talk details some of the solutions we arrived at and also some of the lessons learned.

Ola Bini works as a language geek for ThoughtWorks in Chicago. He is from Sweden but don't hold that against him. He is one of the JRuby core developers and have been involved in JRuby development since 2006. At one point in time, Ola got tired of all existing programming languages and decided to create his own, called Ioke. Then he did it again, and started work on Seph. He has written a book called Practical JRuby on Rails Projects for APress, and coauthered Using JRuby for the Pragmatic Programmers, talked at numerous conferences, and contributed to a large amount of open source projects. He is also a member of the JSR292 Expert Group.

His main passion lies in implementing languages, working on regular expression engines and trying to figure out how to create good YAML parsers.
