Description

DESCRIPTION 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 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. RETAIL SELLING POINTS Tells the "why" and "how" of Clojure Covers the new and improved Clojure 1.5 Teachers elegant application design AUDIENCE Written for programmers coming to Clojure from another programming background-no prior experience with Clojure or Lisp is required. ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY Clojure is a powerful general purpose programming language that has powerful features supporting functional programming and multicore computation. It targets the Java Virtual Machine and modern JavaScript engines and provides easy access to host libraries, while providing an agile LISP-like environment.
