Summary

Performance is one of the cornerstones of Clojure's design. Abstractions in Clojure are designed for simplicity, power, and safety with performance firmly in mind. We saw the performance characteristics of various abstractions and also how to make decisions about abstractions depending on performance use cases.

In the next chapter, we will see how Clojure interoperates with Java and how we can extract Java's power to derive optimum performance.
