Book Description

Clojure in Action, 2nd Edition is an expanded and improved version that's been updated to cover the new features of Clojure 1.6. The book gives you a rapid introduction to the Clojure language, moving from abstract theory to practical examples. You'll start by learning how to use Clojure as a general-purpose language. Next, you'll explore Clojure's efficient concurrency model, based on the database concept of Software Transactional Memory (STM). You'll gain a new level of productivity through Clojure DSLs that can run on the JVM. Along the way, you'll learn countless tips, tricks, and techniques for writing smaller, safer, and faster code.
