Training Course: Day Zero

Have you ever fancied dipping your toes into the Clojure waters and exploring functional programming? If so, then this is the course for you. We’ll start from the very beginning, and will help you choose and set-up the Clojure development environment that suits you before gently strolling up the Clojure foothills together.

This is a one day course, designed for developers who have little or no exposure to Clojure or functional programming. It starts from the very beginning explaining the fundamentals of Clojure, helping developers to build up a basic proficiency in the language via the use of mentoring and immersive exercises.

As a programming language, Clojure is a compact language which is easy to learn. We’ll create a simple project and teach you all the basics: data, functions, sequences, namespaces and the bits of the JVM you need to know.

  • Development environment setup

  • The REPL

  • Data

  • Forms and functions

  • Sequences

  • Bringing it all together: functional programming

  • Working with the JDK

It was a real pleasure to see transducers built before my eyes, from the hands of a Clojure pro!
