Meeting

Next meeting will be on 5 March 2012, as usual at Common Roots (www.commonrootscafe.com) in the Community Room.  However, our start time is *NOT* as usual.  Our meeting will start at 7:00 PM (the room is reserved by another group until 7:00 PM); figure that the talk will start at 7:30PM.  Some of us are likely to be there starting around 6:00 PM to eat dinner, etc.

CL-MW: The development of a Master/Worker framework in Common Lisp

CL-MW is a Common Lisp Master/Worker framework for rapid prototyping of pleasantly parallel applications with fine-grained tasks. It focuses on low cognitive overhead for application development, easy integration with well-known batch scheduling systems, and scalability in the ~10K worker and the billions of tasks range. Hear about the challenges and solutions in the development of this framework.
