Join Arthur Ulfeldt for an in-depth discussion in this video Some Clojure vocabulary, part of Learning Clojure.
- It is often been said that Clojurians love vocab words, so here are some of the terms I'll use throughout this course. Simple. It's a concept that can't be broken down. As simple as it gets. Simple is one of the primary goals of the Clojure language, it's also a piece of data that's not made of other smaller pieces of data. Value. Anything that does not change over time. Compound. Data that is made of other data, not simple. Identity. A sequence of values that change with time and have a name.
Evaluate. Translate one expression into the next, usually by running it. Function. Those things they taught you in algebra. That's the technical term. REPL. An interactive program that lets you type code, run it and see the result.
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.
