Looking for Clojure Developer Training?
Using on-site instructor-led hands-on training we can help your team hit the ground running and quickly start delivering value. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Clojure Fundamentals you will learn how to set up your development environment. You will learn how to develop Clojure interactively using the REPL, and how to compile and deploy Clojure applications. You will learn the details of Clojure’s syntax, data structures, and concepts like laziness and persistence. Through short lectures and hands-on exercises you will gradually become fluent in thinking functionally.
After the class
After the class you will have tamed Clojure through your hands-on programming experiences. You will feel comfortable starting a Clojure project from scratch. You will know how to translate programming ideas into Clojure. And you will experience the intensely interactive and enjoyable process of working in Clojure.

Who is the instructor?
My name is Asim Jalis. I have worked at Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Symantec, and Salesforce, on large enterprise applications.

There is nothing else that will get you started as quickly.
