Get your head around Functional programming with Clojure

A session at /dev/summer 2015

Many programming languages are becoming functional, so how are you getting up to speed with Functional programming?

Coding with Clojure gives you a simple and focused way to pick up functional programming concepts, such as immutability, first-class functions,etc.

Clojure has a tiny syntax that is quick to learn and a wide range of libraries and frameworks to build apps & services. Simple interoperability with Java and other JVM makes it easy to use existing code & libraries without mixing paradigms in your Clojure code.

Discover how to write Clojure through a range of code examples that you can try out yourself, quickly getting your brain thinking functionally and taking lessons learnt back to your own favourite languages if you wish.
