Clojure Standard Library: an in-depth guide

  1. 1. The Guide to the Clojure Standard Library By Renzo Borgatti Save 42% with code ssborgatti.
  2. 2. Documentation for the Clojure standard library is a bit scattered and terse. I need a reference book that has it all in one place.
  3. 3. Clojure Standard Library has arrived. The perfect companion for the beginner, intermediate, or seasoned Clojure programmer. Information about the Clojure standard library tends to be fragmented and not user-friendly, but this book collects all the vital information in a single place – for your convenience.
  4. 4. There just isn’t a go-to resource for the standard library. Clojure Standard Library is set to become the go-to reference book for Clojure programmers – the one that you’re never going to have out of reach when you’re programming. Mastering the standard library is one of the most important parts of mastering Clojure (or any language, for that matter), and this book is going to help you do just that!
  5. 5. It’s not just any run-of-the-mill reference book. Many consider the standard library to be a passive resource, which one accesses when the need arises. Clojure Standard Library takes a more interesting and systematic approach to learning the ins and outs – to help you on your path to becoming a true Clojure master.
  6. 6. It’s the keys to the kingdom. Clojure Standard Library is full of real- world examples, links, and background information, as well as clear and illuminating examples for each topic. The only thing it doesn’t go into exhaustive detail on is programming topics – for more info on Clojure background theory see some of our other titles.
  7. 7. It’s all about the functions. Clojure Standard Library has put a great deal of effort illustrating functions in a readable and pleasant way, using a lot of real-life examples and visual structures to attract attention to the essential parts. This makes the path to mastering Clojure both fun and highly informative!
  8. 8. Learn from a passionate Clojure programmer and expert. The author is a software engineer with more than 15 years of experience in the field. He worked with Java, Ruby, and Objective-C before discovering Clojure and functional programming a few years ago, a passion that quickly turned into professional work. He's also a frequent speaker at user groups and conferences. - So you know you’re getting a high-quality book.
