Learn how to build complete client-side applications with ClojureScript, the Clojure language variant that compiles to optimized JavaScript. This hands-on introduction shows you how ClojureScript not only has similarities to JavaScript without the flaws but also supports the full semantics of its parent language. Youll delve into Clojure Scripts immutable data structures, lazy sequences, first-class functions, macros and support for JavaScript libraries.

No previous experience with Clojure or ClojureScript is necessary. If youre familiar with JavaScript, HTML, CSS and the DOM, youll quickly discover that ClojureScript has the same reach as JavaScript, but with more power.
