ClojureScript: Up and Running: Functional Programming for the Web

Use your JavaScript skills to build complete client-side applications with ClojureScript, the Clojure language variant that compiles to optimized JavaScript. With this fully revised and expanded introduction, you’ll learn hands-on how ClojureScript not only has similarities to JavaScript—without the flaws—but also supports the full semantics of its parent language.You’ll delve into ClojureScript’s immutable data structures, lazy sequences, first-class functions, macros, and support for JavaScript libraries. You'll also understand how to work with core.async and ReactJS.No previous experience with Clojure or ClojureScript is necessary. If you’re familiar with JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and the DOM, you’ll quickly discover that ClojureScript has the same reach as JavaScript, but with more power.
