The Joy of Vector Programming
In this talk, Dave will explain why vector or array programming (technically applicative functional programming) is so empowering and important in a data driven world. Many experienced vector programmers will be surprised to learn how vector programming applies outside of finance to unstructured applications such as text analytics, graph analytics and visual analytics. Dave will also discuss recent hardware innovations that can be leveraged by vector programming. YOW Night attendees will have the opportunity to meet and talk with vector developers employed in both real-time streaming and big data analytics.
