Learn what many Java programmers have recently discovered: the Clojure language offers a practical alternative for solving demanding problems, using existing Java libraries, frameworks, and services. With this book, you get a solid grounding in Clojure fundamentals, based on the environments you already familiar with-whether you're working with data, concurrency, application interfaces, or other challenges. Learn how this JVM language can make your work simpler and help you be more productive. Clojure Programming demonstrates the language's flexibility and wide use by taking a Java project and converting it to Clojure. This in-depth look also shows Ruby and Python developers that Closure is just as expressive and sophisticated with one added advantage: all the resources of the JVM.
