Recommended : Creating Web Services Using Clojure

Recently, I provided a post on creating RESTful web services in Java.  Today, we focus on creating RESTful web services in Clojure. If you are new to Clojure, you can get an accelerated look at it in Learn Clojure.  Let’s start with building RESTful web APIs :


Here is another example, a set of slides from Josep Bach :

Finally, a series also in building Clojure web services :
