This book is divided into three high impact sections. The first section gives you an introduction to live programming and best practices. We show you how to interact with your connections by manipulating, transforming, and merging collections. You'll learn how to work with macros, protocols, multi-methods, and transducers. We'll also teach you how to work with languages such as Java, and Scala.

The next section deals with intermediate-level content and enhances your Clojure skills, here we'll teach you concurrency programming with Clojure for high performance. We will provide you with advanced best practices, tips on Clojure programming, and show you how to work with Clojure while developing applications.

In the final section you will learn how to test, deploy and analyze websocket behavior when your app is deployed in the cloud. Finally, we will take you through DevOps. Developing with Clojure has never been easier with these recipes by your side!

Style and approach

This book takes a recipe-based approach by diving directly into helpful programming concepts. It will give you a foolproof approach to programming and teach you how to deal with problems that may arise while working with Clojure.

    Comments about oreilly Clojure Programming Cookbook:

    The book is a great collection of how-tos from starting the repl to deployment and testing.

    It is also full of interesting usages of Clojure and curious ideas.

    One can find amusing example of using AWS lambda functions or running a docker container on Raspberry PI.

    The book will be great as a reference and as a source of inspiration. Any Clojure developer will find something interesting and new in the book.

    For me as a reviewer the book was interesting to read and challenging to test all recipes listed in the book.
