Clojure For The Brave And True, Paperback / softback Book

Clojure For The Brave And True Paperback / softback


For weeks, month - no! from the very moment you were born - you've felt it calling to you.

Now, at long last, you will be united with the programming language you've been longing for: Clojure! Clojure is a functional programming language that runs on the Java Virtual Machine.

That means it can take advantage of the vast Java ecosystem while offering the expressive syntax of a Lisp-style language.

Clojure for the Brave and True offers a "dessert-first" approach, so you can start playing with real programs immediately, as you steadily acclimate to the abstract but powerful features of Lisp and functional programming.

Inside you'll find an offbeat but practical guide to Clojure, filled with quirky sample programs that catch cheese thieves and track glittery vampires.

You'll also learn how to: Wield and compose Clojure's core functions Use Emacs for Clojure development Write macros to to modify the Clojure programming language itself Use Clojure's tools to simplify concurrency and parallel programming Clojure for the Brave and True assumes no prior experience with Clojure, the Java Virtual Machine, or functional programming.

Are you ready, brave reader, to meet your true destiny?Grab your best pair of parentheses: you're about to embark on an epic journey into the world of Clojure!
