A tour of concurrency primitives in Clojure
More
Clojure is a new Lisp that runs on the JVM and CLR, and provides interesting new ways to write highly concurrent programs. Rather than make use of complicated locking primitives, Clojure provides a set of powerful, immutable-by-default data types and adds language-level support for mutating them in controlled ways. We'll examine just enough Clojure syntax to allow us to delve into this approach to managing concurrency-based complexity. No previous exposure to Clojure is assumed or required.
