Clojure Programming Cookbook

Key FeaturesThis book makes use of a wide variety of practical cases and real world techniques to enhance your productivity with Clojure.This comprehensive guide will help users resolve the everyday issues they face with a functional mindset using ClojureYou will learn to write highly efficient, more productive, and error-free programs without the risk of deadlocks and race-conditionsBook DescriptionThis 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.What you will learnManipulate, access, filter, and transform your data with ClojureUse macros to make code more readableDevelop a deep learning application with ClojureGet to know Concurrency Programming with ClojureBuild on Haskell abstractions to write functional testsAnalyze websocket behavior with BeanstalkWrite AWS Lambda functions in ClojureAbout the AuthorMakoto Hashimoto is an IT architect based in Japan. He has been involved in a lot of projects as an architect and has led them successfully with an agile development style.
