Join Arthur Ulfeldt for an in-depth discussion in this video Further resources and next steps, part of Learning Clojure.
- Just like to thank you for taking the time…to watch this course with me.…Now let's go over a few things worth exploring next.…First a bit of a caveat.…Unlike a lot of new languages, Clojure suffers…from an excess of documentation.…Sort of at the beginning of the language,…lots of people jumped in and started…documenting things, and as the language has evolved,…and really settled into a coherent ecosystem,…a lot of that old documentation is still…floating around there, and has a lot of links.…So if you're reading some, a Clojure tutorial…or video, et cetera, and you see references to…installing Clojure or you see references to…Clojure.contrib, these are a couple of signs…you should watch out for and know that…you're probably reading outdated documents.…
Alright. Where to next?…A great first stop is the 4Clojure website.…No, they won't sell you a cheap house,…but they will give you some great fill-in-the-blank style…questions for learning Clojure, and it's kind of fun.…You can get a little competitive about it,…
Arthur Ulfeldt covers the Leiningen build tool and setting up Clojure to work with the IntelliJ IDEA dev environment. He then reviews the basics of the syntax, including functions, expressions, values, macros, strings, and conditionals. He shows how to structure, compile, and deploy Clojure projects in Leiningen, and pull from Clojure's core library. In the final chapters, Arthur explores references and namespaces and points to resources to learn more about Clojure.
