Clojure, The Essential Reference Paperback / softback


The Clojure standard library is a treasure trove of functions and macros that have been battle-tested over the years to solve the most challenging programming problems. Clojure: The Essential Reference is an extensive reference to the standard library but it doesn't read as a dull list of functions.

In addition to providing clear explanations for each topic, this guide is full of real-world examples, links, and background information. Key Features* An introduction including areas of application and main goals* A more rigorous contract section, including parameters and return types* Real world examples of the function in action* Background and conceptual information necessary to better understand the function For developers of all skill levels who need a thorough reference to Clojure standard library About the technology The standard library is one of the most important tools to master a language.

One aspect that characterizes the standard library is the fact that it's already packaged with a language when you first experiment with it. Renzo Borgattiis a software engineer with more than 15 years of experience in the field.

Renzo worked with Java, Ruby, and Objective-C before discovering Clojure and functional programming a few years ago, a passion that quickly turned into professional work.

He's a frequent speaker at user groups and conferences.
