Section 3: Working With Data

In this section, we will get to know one of the most distinguishing features of ClojureScript - its library of immutable collections and the functions that operate on them. First, we will survey the collections that ClojureScript offers as part of its standard library. Next, we will study the sequence abstraction that is one of the core abstractions of the language. Then we will devote an entire lesson to reduce, the most general and powerful function that operates on the sequence abstraction. We will finish this section by applying ClojureScript’s collection types to real-world domain modeling. For the capstone, we will create a simple but functional contact book application.
