Appendix A: Resources
The Joy of Clojure, Second Edition is a deep look at the Clojure language. Fully updated for Clojure 1.5, this new edition goes beyond just syntax to show you the "why" of Clojure and how to write fluent Clojure code. You'll learn functional and declarative approaches to programming and will master the techniques that make Clojure so elegant and efficient. The book gives you motivated access to hard software areas like concurrency, interoperability, and performance. And it shows you how great it can be to think about problems in the Clojure way.
- Covers Clojure 1.5
- Build web apps using ClojureScript
- Master functional programming techniques
- Simplify concurrency
This book assumes you've already learned the basics of Clojure and want to take the next steps. It's also appropriate for readers with a background in common Lisp but who are new to Clojure.
