Clojure: From Zero to Deploy

Currently writing a book to teach web application development with Clojure. It is built on Penflip, letting me collaborate with my two co-authors using Git-like branching. I am the author of the majority of content while the others function as editors and organizers at the current time.



A four month, forty hour a week class on web development. Began with simple HTML, CSS, and JavaScript static pages, eventually building up to SQL, ActiveRecord, and Ruby on Rails to build web applications. Concentrated on object-oriented design principles and test-driven development with RSpec, Mocha, Chai, and Capybara.
