"Pattern matching is a powerful tool for processing data based on type and structure. In this talk I’ll discuss a new library I’ve been working on that provides optimized, extensible pattern matching to Clojure. We’ll cover the theory, the implementation, and future directions for this library, in particular the true goal - predicate dispatch."
David Nolen is the primary developer of the Clojure contrib library core.logic - an efficient Prolog-like logic engine. The pattern matching library continues his investigations into the relationships between object-oriented, functional, and logic programming.
