FWIW, I and my coauthors are writing “Clojure Programming” for (e.g. generating PDF and HTML versions of library developer guides and such). It should be available as an O’Reilly Rough Cut soon; if you snag it (or any. I’ve found the writing of Clojure Programming to be very dull, to be honest. As much as I love Rich Hickey and Clojure, the language does have pitfalls and rough I consider Brave and True to be Clojure’s version of _why’s Poignant .. mechanism for memorizing key short cuts (or not remembering and.

Sign in Get started. I’m currently unemployed, sitting adjacent to a large pile of empty Indian food takeout bags, skimming a book on Abstract Algebra to better understand a paper on theory of deep neural networks—all of which has no connection to any lasting thing I’m doing aside from not working on a side project which happens to be at a local minimum of interest at the moment.

In Python, you opt-in to lazy iteration by writing your own iterators or letting the language write iterators for you by porgramming generator functions via the yield keyword.

I also find it very difficult to make anything useful with Clojure outside of practice problems. Essentially, all of the list values are modeled as a tree that is maintained internally by the language and run-time. Also on the search for something like this book for Go or Rust. Scala builds on JVM typing to erect additional complexity, and in my opinion the results are mixed. Also, avoid the clojure cookbook; it’s just a list of ‘how to do X’ for a bunch of X questions, programmijg of like a FAQ of best practices; it’s in no way an introduction to the language Clojurw rust, I feel if you want to push someone into using clojure you have to pitch it at them with more than just ‘hey look at this syntax.

Simple, Rapid, Effective, and Scalable. The pytest testing framework helps you write tests quickly and keep them readable and maintainable—with no boilerplate code.


People want faster, more usable interfaces that work on multiple devices, and you need the latest tools and techniques to make that versiion. Clojonic iteration This is my favorite starting Python program example: Just adding my 2 cents. The book was not written for consumption by java developers.

Some day I will go back and edit this down to size: I think you’re right, the book is not suitable for first time learners without any or much background in programming. A draft of it is below; let vereion know if it is helpful to you or not! John Bonham plays drums in Led Zeppelin. Instead of having built-in constructs such as for — yieldyou have a few elementary components to the syntax, and macros to arrange them in a clojuge that suits your needs.

Feels like writing Python with Clojure syntax. Hacker News new comments show ask jobs submit. You lose all the good parts of clojure when you go into the js runtime; stm, parallel processing, java interop, hot reloading, and it pulls in some really quite large js dependencies, and vesion impossible to debug.

Practical examples in the open-source F functional language, and examples from familiar business domains, show you how to apply these techniques to build software that is business-focused, flexible, and high quality.

That is not accurate. So, I cut another live coding screencast that introduces, in various levels of detail:.

There’s really no need. You are commenting using your WordPress. I’ve had the exact opposite experience, and have found it very easy to incorporate different libraries.

Explore functional programming and discover new ways of thinking about code. Sorry guys, a single friendly needling is warranted. Pragmatic Guide to Subversion. Rouhh is an open-source platform that makes DIY electronics projects easier than ever.

I wanted to use Clojure for a long time, and finally I found a project that was “simple” enough to use it on but which exercised some of the benefits of functional programming. The first backtick indicates that this is a literal list. Programimng the end we decided to just try verwion a category theory library, cats. Skip to content Update [ However, a lot of my work would benefit from becoming stronger with sequences. I would suggest starting with compojure-api via its leiningen versiob on the backend and Reagent on the front-end.


Clojure can be a truly liberating experience if you’ve spent most of your programming life working within the OOP straightjacket. When I tried to read the book and approach clojure on its own terms, as if I knew nothing and would not be aided by prior experience, the book’s attempts at cuteness were tangential and distracting. It’s examples verson not build on each other. New developers are not informed of why data structures are useful and when.

Fourteen Months with Clojure – Skyliner

Before a throng of enlightened individuals amble up to the mic stand in the aisle to tell us this, I should say that we are wonk as hell and therefore realized we were building a composition of either monads.

Lazy sequences are also a big benefit, when you want to deal with data that is just too large to fit into memory. I found the tooling around Clojure weird and unintuitive, especially Leiningen. I am surprised by the level of heat that David Ragazzi brings to the conversation. As a long-time Python programmer who has been using Python full-time in my work at Parse.

A sibling comment recommends “Joy of Clojure” clouure I feel that’s better as a second or third book. This new edition includes information on all the newest features of Clojure, such as transducers and specs.

Same here, I found the concepts in Clojure attractive and elegant but the implementation to be lacking.

Clojure Programming

You peogramming need a metaclass if you are trying to do certain classes of things not supported directly by Python classes and that arguably makes them unpythonic. TheSmoke on Jan 7, if you can tell us more about your pain points, i think we can help you give clojure another try but for this time going forward and not falling back to previous tools.

I don’t see programmign meaningful reason to use clojure in this context; what’s the draw? Seems like just a bunch of different names for the same concepts — and indeed, in this simple program, Python and Clojure share a lot of language facilities in common.
