About the Author
W. David Jarvis W. David Jarvis is a software engineer living in San Francisco, California. In his spare time, he enjoys hiking, gardening, playing pool in dive bars, and overthinking everything. He is active in the open source Clojure and ClojureScript communities, and software authored by him has been downloaded over 10,000 times. David has worked for a number of companies now living or dead, including Aggregate Knowledge, CircleCI, Standard Treasury, and Airbnb. He is currently responsible for the build, test, and deployment infrastructure at Airbnb. The "W" is for "William" (now you know!). While David has made the unfortunate mistake of exposing his previous scribblings to the world, this is his first actual book.
Rafik Naccache Rafik Naccache is a Tunisian experienced software architect and emergent technologies enthusiast. He earned his bachelors degree in computer science engineering from Tunis University of Science in 2001. Rafik fell in love with Clojure back in 2012, and he has been developing it professionally since 2013. He has occupied various positions in telecoms and banking, and he has launched some innovative internet startups in which he has been able to deploy Clojure apps. He also founded the Tunisian Clojure users community.

He has given multiple talks at Clojure/West and Clojure/conj. Currently, Allen is working on a startup called Rasterize (https://rasterize.io), which helps companies improve conversion rate by optimizing website load times.

I wish I would have had this book when I started working with ClojureScript. ClojureScript has one of the best developer experiences, with code-reloading and a REPL, but it can be a bit daunting to set it up the first time. This book takes you through all the steps and keeps you from missing out on some of the best aspects of developing with ClojureScript.
The second and third chapters might be a bit too much to take in at once for people new to ClojureScript. I'd recommend you skim them the first time, then come back and use them as a reference when you start building your application.
The rest of the book gives you a nice foundation for building applications in ClojureScript. I may have focused on a few different libraries, but the ones they cover are pretty solid, with one notable exception. I wouldn't recommend anybody use Dommy. I used it and found it very confusing--you're much better off using the tools you get for free from Google Closure.
- Start from the basics and go through complex cases
- Well written, can be seriously read in a 2/3 days period (if you have a little experience in clojure(script)
- Code examples in chapter 5 (om todo app with back-end) - some mistakes in code
