Clojure in ActioneBook - 2016
Clojure is a relatively new version of Lisp that runs on the Java Virtual Machine. It's a functional language, which means that it's ideal for the growing need for concurrent programming and for specialized tasks like creating domain specific languages.
Clojure in Action, Second Edition is a fully-revised edition that covers the new features available in Clojure 1.5. This easy-to-follow tutorial provides a rapid introduction to the Clojure language and starts by showing how to use Clojure as a general purpose language. It looks at Clojure's efficient concurrency model, which is based on the familiar database concept of Software Transactional Memory (STM) and helps readers find a new level of productivity through Clojure DSLs that run on the JVM. Using this book, readers will discover countless tips, tricks, and techniques for writing smaller, faster, and safer code.
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.
