Next meeting rescheduled to Saturday January 31st

We will still meet at St. Stephens, in northwest DC, just a week later than we’d initially planned: on the 31st at 1PM, a day before Paul Barry’s beloved Baltimore Ravens take the field in Superbowl 0x2B.

Concurrency is still on the agenda. Watch for an update to the Programming Clojure PDF soon: Stuart Halloway has pledged to try to get us a more complete Concurrency chapter with a discussion of atoms. Thanks, Stuart!

If the door is locked on the 31st, we’ll post a note with my cell phone number for you to call for entry. I hope to see you there.

  1. The concurrency chapter will be updated in Beta 6: hopefully next week and well in advance of the meeting. 🙂

  2. Beta 6 (which will hopefully be out tomorrow) fixes two concurrency related bugs in the book:

    (1) the hello example in chapter 1 now uses alter instead of dosync to avoid a race condition.

    (2) the lancet example in chapter 6 now uses locking (!) instead of agents because agents cannot await inside another agent.

    The code fixes are already online at http://github.com/stuarthalloway/programming-clojure/tree/master.

    Hope you guys have a great meeting.
