The Joy of Clojure, Second Edition has been fully updated to cover the new and improved features of Clojure 1.5. It goes beyond the syntax and tells the "why" of Clojure and shows how to write fluent, idiomatic Clojure code. Readers will learn to approach programming challenges from a functional perspective and master the Lisp techniques that make Clojure so efficient and elegant. It also tackles hard software areas like concurrency, interoperability, performance, and more.
