By Adam Bard
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: April 2015
Run time: 2 hours 54 minutes

In this Learning Clojure training course, expert author Adam Bard will teach you how to write write Clojure code and structure Clojure products. This course is designed for the absolute beginner, meaning no experience with Clojure is required, although some programming knowledge would be beneficial.

You will start by learning how to structure Clojure projects, then jump into interacting with Java. From there, Adam will teach you about concurrency, how to write safer software, and how to interact with data stores. Finally, this video training will cover writing a web application with Clojure, including how to route with Compojure, render HTML with Selmer and Hiccup, and render HTML with Enlive.

Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will be fully capable of taking advantage of Clojure's unique feature set to start writing useful software. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.

    Comments about oreilly Learning Clojure:

    I liked this, easy to follow.

    Occasionally the author moves onto the next topic, and the screen changes too quickly, before you have a chance to see what was typed.

    The only real qualm I have, is regarding the sample code. The only code that is available, in case you need to check some spelling or other errors, is the html and css file.

    There's a Working Files - README.txt file, that gives you an alternate location for the sample code. But that doesn't have any Clojure source, either.

      Comments about oreilly Learning Clojure:

      This video is mainly for people new to clojure but not new to programming. I liked that the presenter covered what I needed to know in a concise manner and that the presentation had been rehearsed to the point where there are no unnecessary distractions. However, the conciseness of the videos makes the videos "dense" and at least I will have to view parts again because the information flew by too quickly.
