It also encourages the use of a minimal set of pragmatic and efficient data structures that make it possible to productively write data-oriented programs that are bound by a set of unified operations, typically conforming to the powerful seq abstraction.

In this chapter, we are going to explore these semantics and data structures so that we can gain a deep knowledge of the ClojureScript language basics. We'll delve into its basic scalar types and collections, understand how expression evaluation and variable scoping ...
