If you want to keep up with the significant changes in this important language, you need the second edition of Programming Clojure. Stu and Aaron describe the modifications to the numerics system in Clojure 1.3, explain new Clojure concepts such as Protocols and Datatypes, and teach you how to think in Clojure.

Programming Clojure, 2nd Edition is a significant update to the classic book on the Clojure language. You'll get thorough coverage of all the new features of Clojure 1.3, and enjoy reorganized and rewritten chapters that reflect the significance of new Clojure concepts. Many code examples have been rewritten or replaced, and every page has been reevaluated in the light of Clojure 1.3.

As Aaron and Stu show you how to build an application from scratch, you'll get a rich view into a complete Clojure workflow. And you'll get an invaluable education in thinking in Clojure as you work out solutions to the various parts of a problem.

Clojure is becoming the language of choice for many who are moving to functional programming or dealing with the challenges of concurrency. Clojure offers:

The simplicity of an elegantly designed language

The power of Lisp

The virtues of concurrency and functional style

The reach of the JVM

The speed of hand-written Java code

It's the combination of these features that makes Clojure sparkle. Programming Clojure, 2nd Edition shows you how to think in Clojure, and to take advantage of these combined strengths to build powerful programs quickly.

What You Need:

Oracle JDK 6

Review:

""Clojure is one of the most interesting languages out there right now, and the best way of learning Clojure just got better. The second edition of "Programming Clojure" adds up-to-date information, plenty of practical examples, and a ton of useful tips on how to learn, work with, and succeed with Clojure.""--Ola Bini, Creator of Ioke language, developer, ThoughtWorks

""The authors have charted the smoothest path yet to Clojure fluency with this well-organized and easy-to-read book. They have a knack for creating simple and effective examples that demonstrate how the language's unique features fit together.""""
--Chris Houser Primary Clojure contributor and library author

""Clojure is a beautiful, elegant, and very powerful language on the JVM. It's like a cathedral: you could wander into it, but you'd prefer the company of a knowledgeable guide who can give you their perspective, to help you grasp and appreciate the architecture and the art. In this book you can enjoy and benefit from the company of not one, but two seasoned developers who have the depth of knowledge and the perspective you need.""""
--Dr. Venkat Subramaniam, Award-winning author and founder of Agile Developer, Inc.
