Book Description

Clojure is a practical, general-purpose language that offers expressivity rivaling other dynamic languages like Ruby and Python, while seamlessly taking advantage of Java libraries, services, and all of the resources of the Jvm ecosystem.

As a Lisp-style functional programming language, Clojure lets you write robust and elegant code, and because it runs on the Java Virtual Machine, you can take advantage of the vast Java ecosystem.

This book offers a "dessert-first" approach: you'll start playing with real programs immediately, as you steadily acclimate to the abstract but powerful features of Lisp and functional programming. Inside you’ll find an offbeat, practical guide to Clojure, filled with quirky sample programs that catch cheese thieves and track glittery vampires.

  • Wield Clojure’s core functions
  • Use Emacs for Clojure development
  • Write macros to modify Clojure itself
  • Use Clojure’s tools to simplify concurrency and parallel programming
About the Authors
  • Daniel Higginbotham has been a professional programmer for eleven years, half of that at McKinsey & Company, where he used Clojure to build mobile and web applications.
