Building Web Applications with Clojure

Video Description

Explore the secrets and tricks of building Clojure web applications

About This Video

  • Work with popular Clojure libraries and frameworks such as Ring and Clojurescript

  • Play with the most popular design patterns to build highly concurrent web applications

  • Enhance your general Clojure knowledge through easy-to-grasp examples

  • In Detail

    Web application development has never been as simple and powerful as it will be with Clojure. It runs on both Java Virtual Machine and JavaScript, providing a robust and dynamic programming environment. Clojure brings the code-as-data functionality of Lisp with it and caters to the need of fast-paced coding while making front end-coding easy and viable.

    This video course starts with a simple project setup and moves on to the various means to use frameworks or libraries, such as Ring and ClojureScript, leading the way to complex web solutions in Clojure. You will be presented with ways to connect to popular databases, such as PostgreSQL or MongoDB, and learn how some existing libraries work and how to use them properly. Thereon you will move to writing single-page applications with ClojureScript and REST API.

    When you're finished with Building Web applications with Clojure, you'll be able to build and diagnose complex web systems in Clojure—regardless of the particular technologies applied.
