The Joy of Clojure

14 Jan 2010

In case you haven't noticed there is a very interesting Clojure book coming out, titled "The Joy of Clojure," written by two very interesting authors that anyone hanging out in the Clojure community should know: Chris Houser and Michael Fogus.

I've fastened my seat belt and ordered my copy :-)
