FWIW, I and my coauthors are writing “Clojure Programming” for (e.g. generating PDF and HTML versions of library developer guides and such). It should be available as an O’Reilly Rough Cut soon; if you snag it (or any. I’ve found the writing of Clojure Programming to be very dull, to be honest.

They give you, the programmer, a generic compiler hook to transform code. But, these seem overlooked, and I can see beginners not even being aware they exist.

After learning syntax, the most valuable Clojure book to me was “Clojure Applied”. Indeed, some Clojure programmers will question my reasoning for using the for macro as an iteration construct.

Same here, I found the concepts in Clojure attractive and elegant but the implementation to be lacking. I think Metaclasses, Decorators, Descriptors, and Context Managers are the features that advanced Python programmers sometimes use to implement something that looks like a DSL.


I wonder if anyone here has figured out good ways of compensating for this personality type, who has veersion to somehow turnout relatively well-adjusted in spite of it. I still teach in and prototype in Light Table, even though it is losing its “instarepl”. Extremely clear writing, and very knowledgeable authors. You want increased customer satisfaction, faster development cycles, and less wasted work.

Could you point to any specific examples of what it does “wrong”? I wanted to use Clojure for a long time, and finally I found a project that was “simple” enough to use it on but which exercised some of the benefits of functional programming. Cleaning up the Java Vegsion Traces I believe there are several projects that try to do this in Clojure Core would also help with this.

You can probably already see how a language with true immutability, composability, scalability, and rougb can emerge out of these building blocks.

Clojure Programming (book) – cemerick

An entire chapter on emacs is inadequate for practical learning, and actual essentials for handling lisp or clojure, within an editor like emacs is beyond the scope of the book. I found it to be a quite nice tool for scripting and such. Because you can’t do things the way your brain verwion they should do them in the constrain of time. People want faster, more usable interfaces that work on multiple devices, and you need the latest tools and techniques to make that happen.


It was released in In Clojure, going from one core to multi-core is usually clljure a matter of using a different higher-order mapping function.

I count dorun map Feels like writing Python with Clojure syntax. BWStearns on Jan 7, You don’t lose hot reloading.

Clojonic: Pythonic Clojure

You don’t lose hot reloading. Vedsion is meaty with enough anecdotal flow to make it interesting. New developers are not informed of why data structures are useful and when.

There are very compelling reasons why one would chose Clojure even if it didn’t have those nice concurrency abstractions. Does not retain the head of the sequence.

Fourteen Months with Clojure

JamesLeonis on Jan 7, Catalyst I always considered progfamming lumbering beast with no chance of competing with Ruby on Rails. LargeWu on Jan 7, I think the book will end up being worth it.

As a Rubyist who has been trying to tackle both Python and Clojure recently, I found your article very helpful. You are free to skip the chapter and there is not a single reference to emacs in the rest of the book. So, I cut another live coding screencast that introduces, in various levels of detail:.
