Publisher Description:

This book is the first definitive reference for the Clojure language, providing both an introduction to functional programming in general, and more specific introduction to Clojure's features. The Definitive Guide to Clojure also demonstrates the use of the language through examples, including features such as STM and immutability that may be new to programmers coming from other languages. Overview of functional programming and description of what sets Clojure apart from other languages Detailed explanation of Clojure's special features

Examples of real-world tasks that are well-suited to Clojure's capabilities, starting with simple tasks and moving to more complex applications What you'll learn What Clojure is: more than just another Lisp How to set up a Clojure environment The structure and syntax of a Clojure program Java interoperability How to use Clojure for real-world tasks Common idioms of Clojure code Who is this book for?

There are two possible audiences. First, to any technical person desiring to know what Clojure is and why they might want to use it, and second, to any programmer desiring to learn and use the language. These two goals mesh nicely, given that Clojure has several very new and cutting-edge features that programmers are unlikely to have encountered before.
