Based off the popular title 'The Well-Grounded Java Developer', this tutorial covers four major themes (Java 7, Functional programming, polyglot programming and modern concurrency) which we believe that all Well-Grounded Java developers should be aware of, and start practising to stay ahead of the game in 2012 and beyond.

At the end, you you'll wake up, turn to your friends and say, "I know Erlang".
Clojure is a general-purpose language with direct support for Java, a modern Lisp dialect, and support in both the language and data structures for functional programming. Learn Clojure and you'll become a better all-around programmer. You'll also be able to write
