DESCRIPTION Clojure is a new version of Lisp that runs on the Java Virtual Machine. It's a functional language, which means that it's ideal for the growing need for concurrent programming and for specialized tasks like creating domain specific languages. 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 prior experience with Lisp. It teaches Clojure from the basics to advanced topics using practical, real-world application examples. Readers will move quickly through the theory and dive into practical matters like unit-testing, environment set up, and all the way through building a scalable web-application using domain-specific languages, Hadoop, HBase, and RabbitMQ. KEY POINTS * A complete tutorial, from basics to applied techniques * Covers creation of Domain-Specific Languages * Contains numerous practical examples
