November 2013 | Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce the release of its new book Clojure High Performance Programming. Developers will discover how to design Clojure programs for performance using this practical and easy-to-follow guide.

About the Author:

Shantanu Kumar is a software developer living in Bangalore, India. He started learning how to program in 1991 using BASIC on MS DOS when he was at school. In recent years, Shantanu has worked on high performance and distributed systems. Having used Java for a long time, he discovered Clojure in 2009 and has been a fan ever since. Later, he programmed professionally in several business domains and technologies while working with the Indian Air Force and other IT companies. Clojure's pragmatism and fine-grained orthogonality continue to amaze him and he believes he is a better developer due to it.

The clear and concise explanations offered in this guide will help readers learn the key features of Clojure including performance vocabulary, performance analysis, and optimization techniques. Clojure High Performance Programming explains how these features can be applied to programs. Users will also learn how to exploit Clojure language in their own code. Users will learn how to analyze latency using the Criterium library, use Java features in Clojure code for performance, and so on. Clojure High Performance Programming will also explore the Java Virtual Machine hardware and how it will affect Clojure’s performance. It explores the details of Clojure's concurrency, state-management, and parallelization primitives.

Intermediate Clojure developers wanting to achieve optimum performance will find this book is beneficial. Users wanting to apply the right approach for optimum performance in real-world programs will find that this hands-on guide is a valuable resource.
