Hello fellow Geeks! Today, we have some exciting news for you! Java Code Geeks and Packt have teamed up to offer you weekly discounts on their extensive library of books.
This week, we are offering discounts on three books to help you understand and master Clojure. Check them out!
By David Jarvis, Rafik Naccache, Allen Rohner
Clojure is an expressive language that makes it possible to easily tackle complex software development challenges. Its bias toward interactive development has made it a powerful tool, enabling high developer productivity.
In this book, you will first learn how to construct an interactive development experience for ClojureScript, and will then be guided through ClojureScript language concepts, looking at the basics first, followed by an introduction to advanced concepts such as functional programming or macro writing. After that, this book will elaborate on the subject of single page web applications, showcasing how to build a simple one, then covering different possible enhancements. You will then move on to study more advanced ClojureScript concepts, where you will be shown how to address some complex algorithmic cases. Finally, you’ll learn about optional type-checking for your programs, how you can write portable code, test it, and put the advanced compilation mode of the Google Closure Compiler to good use.

Clojure for Java Developers
By Eduardo Díaz
We have reached a point where machines are not getting much faster, software projects need to be delivered quickly, and high quality in software is more demanding than ever.
We need to explore new ways of writing software that helps achieve those goals. Clojure offers a new possibility of writing high quality, multi-core software faster than ever, without having to leave your current platform.
Clojure for Java developers aims at unleashing the true potential of the Clojure language to use it in your projects. The book begins with the installation and setup of the Clojure environment before moving on to explore the language in-depth. Get acquainted with its various features such as functional programming, concurrency, etc. with the help of example projects. Additionally, you will also learn how the tooling works, and how it interacts with the Java environment.
By the end of this book, you will have a firm grip on Clojure and its features, and use them effectively to write more robust programs.

Clojure Reactive Programming
By Leonardo Borges
Reactive Programming (RP) is central to many concurrent systems. It endeavors to make the process of developing highly-concurrent, event-driven, and asynchronous applications simpler and less error-prone. RP comes in many flavors and we will look at some of them in this book.
Clojure Reactive Programming is a practical guide aimed at exploring RP. It starts by describing Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) and its formulations, as well as how it inspired Compositional Event Systems (CES).
It also presents several examples of Reactive applications implemented in different frameworks, allowing you to develop an understanding of the subject as well as learn how to develop your ability to work with time-varying values.
By the end of the book, you will be equipped to solve real-world problems as well as understand the trade-offs between the approaches shown in the book.
