I'll be teaching a Cascalog workshop on February 19th at BackType HQ in Union Square. You can sign up at http://cascalog.eventbrite.com. Early bird tickets are available until January 31st.
I'm very excited to be teaching this workshop. Cascalog's tight integration with Clojure opens up a world of techniques that no other data processing tool is able to do. Even though I created Cascalog, I've been discovering many of these techniques as I've made use of Cascalog for more and more varied tasks. Along the way, I've tweaked Cascalog so that making use of these techniques would be cleaner and more idiomatic. At this point, after nine months of iteration, Cascalog is a joy to use for even the most complex tasks. I'm excited to impart this knowledge upon others in this workshop.
