Let’s kick things off by making a book recommendation for folks who have some background in programming, just a little bit, and who want to start learning Clojure. Even if you don’t have any experiance in programming and for some reason you want to dive into it by learning Clojure, you will definitely learn something by picking up “Clojure for the Brave and True”.
Book recommendation for Clojure beginners – “Clojure for the Brave and True”
What’s great about “Clojure for the Brave and True” is that not only is this book highly educational on Clojure, it’s also a lot of fun to read. For starters it has a lot of illustrations that authors wife made, and I think that they make learning more enjoyable. I know I definitely remember concepts better once that I see a funny sketch explain it in a comical manner. Or is that just my brain that works that way?
“Clojure for the Brave and True” moves at a snails pace you might say. It really gives the reader a good foundation for learning Clojure by first talking about what this programming language is and what it’s not, before moving on and actually explaining core concepts. What’s even better, the book can be read for free on the authors website, BraveClojure.com. To support the author, you’re encouraged to buy the print version of the book off of Amazon. All the links and info can be found on the previous link that I provided. Hope you enjoy it.
