The Joy of Clojure

by

The Joy of Clojure Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clojure is a dialect of Lisp that runs on both the JVM and anywhere that JavaScript runs. It combines the nice features of a scripting language with the powerful features of a production environment—features like persistent data structures and clean concurrency primitives that are needed for industrial-strength application development.

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.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
