Clojure In ActionMy first book on Clojuregood Introduction But Sadly introduction but sadly Clojure still a young languagesome of the examples don t compilestillnice book to get started Really excellent book It focuses on Lisp as a concept and how Clojure enables the Lisp mindset The practical examples are about teaching one how to think rather than a cookbook style approach of here s how you use Redis in Clojure I didn t make it through the whole book but I gave it two tries I think that Clojure has a lot to offer but its simplicity doesn t always shine through with this book I am Hoping To Read Another to read another on Closure at some time Possibly The Joy of Clojure will be a better read This should not be your first book in Lisp family of languages as it has pretty steep learning curve also some experience with the functional programming is recomm. Summary Clojure in Action is a hands on tutorial for the working programmer who has written code in a language like Java or Ruby but has no prior experience with Lisp It teaches Clojure from the basics to advanced topics using practical real world application examples Blow through the theory and dive into practical matters like unit testing and environment set up all the way through building a scalable web application using domain specific languages Hadoop HBase and RabbitM About the TechnologyClojure is modern Lisp for the JVM and it has the strengths you'd expect first class functions macros for functional programming and a Lisp like clean programming style About this BookClojure in Action is a pra. EndedThe book gives a very nice overview of the Clojure philosophy and various aspects of programming in Clojure style this is a rated review of a book not philosophy and various aspects of programming in Clojure style this is a rated review of a book not language Very dense intensive demanding no easy fly by but on the other hand also very competent packed with reasonably Filtered Material Contains Pretty Much Everything You Need To Start material Contains pretty much everything you need to start Clojure language wise even much Why language wise Because there a almost nothing about the toolin middle chapters are boring and very technology specific the ending chapters pick up the pace will be rereading it soon A book full of inspirations for implementing idiomatic and well designed Clojure programs A resourceful book that explores different aspects of real life programming challenges with one of the most intriguing technologies around A nice overview of Ctical guide focused on applying Clojure to practical programming challenges You'll start with a language tutorial written for readers who already know OOP Then you'll dive into the use cases where Clojure really shines state management safe concurrency and multicore programming first class code generation and Java interop In each chapter you'll first explore the uniue characteristics of a problem area and then discover how to tackle them using Clojure Along the way you'll explore practical matters like architecture unit testing and set up as you build a scalable web application that includes custom DSLs Hadoop HBase and RabbitM What's InsideA fast paced a scalable web application that includes custom DSLs Hadoop HBase and RabbitM What's InsideA fast paced tutorial Creating web services with Clojure Scal. ,
