Rich Hickey Presents: Clojure - A Dynamic Programming Language for the
JVM

Clojure is a dynamic programming language that targets the
Java Virtual Machine. It combines the approachability and
interactive development of a scripting language with an
efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded
programming.

Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM
bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Every feature
supported by Clojure is supported at runtime. It provides
easy access to the Java frameworks, with optional type hints
and type inference, to ensure that calls to Java can avoid
reflection.

Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the
code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system. But
Clojure is predominantly a functional programming language
and features a rich set of immutable, persistent data
structures. When mutable state is needed, Clojure offers a
software transactional memory system that ensures clean,
correct, multithreaded designs.

Rich is the author of the Lisp-related projects jFli, Foil and
Lisplets. He has over 20 years experience developing sophisticated
scheduling, automation and analysis systems in a variety of programming
languages.
