Clojure is a new dynamic language targeting the JVM, the .NET CLR, and JavaScript. Clojure builds on the long history of Lisp-based languages while embracing modern platforms and pragmatic design.

This talk is an introduction to Clojure and its core concepts: immutable values, functional programming, code as data, software transactional memory, generic data structures, and protocols.
