Join Arthur Ulfeldt for an in-depth discussion in this video Simple values or "Primitives", part of Learning Clojure.
- [Instructor] Values in clojure are broadly categorized…into simple values and compound values.…Simple values first.…Simple in this case simply means…not complex or not compound.…Just one thing.…It's simple.…This is sort of a special clojure definition of simple.…If you ask a clojurian, is that simple?…They'll say yes or no pretty definitively…by looking at it and seeing if it combines…more than one thing.…If you ask somebody else on the street…and just be like, hey is this simple?…They'll probably look at it and be like,…it's simple to me.…
Meaning often, it's easy for me…or it's something I recognize right away.…So simple things are just things…that are not composed of smaller parts.…A number is simple.…A list of numbers is compound, not simple.…There's no emotional or judgment attached to simple.…Simple is not better.…It's just a description of a data structure in this context.…Simple does not mean easy, here.…Often times breaking your code down into functions…that are simple, where each function does one thing,…
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.
