Clojure – Modern dialect of Lisp

Uploaded on 17 April 2014

This tutorial aims at giving you a taste of functional programming with Clojure, a modern dialect of Lisp designed to run as an hosted language on the Java Virtual Machine (and an increasing number of other host platforms). Based on the lambda calculus theory developed by Alonzo Church in 1930s, the family of functional languages has a long history and forms one of the major branches in the big tree of available programming languages today.
