This is a short, practical guide that will teach you everything you need to know to start writing high performance Clojure code.This book is ideal for intermediate Clojure developers who are looking to get a good grip on how to achieve optimum performance. You should already have some experience with Clojure and it would help if you already know a little bit of Java. Knowl ...more

Alexander Yakushev
The book packs plenty of information about performance, most of it quite generic, not really related to Clojure. At the same time, there are many tips about how to make Clojure programs faster. What feels wrong about this book is that the two sides (generic performance knowledge and Clojure tips) don't seem to follow each other or connect much. I wouldn't recommend this book for anything else but to get a general idea about performance optimizations. ...more

The book is about... Clojure Performance. Yes, but wait. I summarize my impression of the book as a "quickly introduction" and "experience distilled" on "selected performance topics" with some "examples in Clojure when is possible" (with Java and the JVM themes obviously involved).

If you ever had read about "Queuing Theory", "Precomputing and Caching", "Performance Testing", "Profiling", you can read the book with the confidence that at some point you will learn something new or do some link wit

Short & dense book on performance optimization for Clojure. The book covers no only clojure/jvm-related optimizations, but also tries to give overview of what influence performance of the computer systems (cpu, caches, memory, etc.). It provides overview of JVM memory model & internals and gives some tips on how to optimize programs in Clojure, including tips on using type hinting, primitive types, arrays, etc. One chapter is completely dedicated to parallel/concurrent programming in Clojure & h ...more

Overall the book was pretty good. It provides interesting examples of real world Clojure code that solve specific performance problems. It talks about host performance, both JVM and hardware, concerns which are both areas that shouldn't be overlooked. I thought the book was best when showing examples of well performing code from libraries.

I'd recommend this book for developers who aren't past the beginning stages of writing performant code. It does a good job introducing the topics you'll want t
