A programming language that I have always been a fan-boy of is lisp. The language of parenthesis, which gives us something that no other language yet has – macros.
I am a total lisp newbee and I will be chronicling my journey to learn lisp.
I have several recommended lisp texts that I will be working through:
- Land of Lisp1
- COMMON LISP: A Gentle Introduction to Symbolic Computation[^]
- ANSI Common Lisp
- Practical Common Lisp
Of course I will begin with the one that teaches through games :-)
Emacs/slime/quicklisp/SBCL is setup and running correctly on my machine, and I have more texts teaching the use of emacs and the tools it provides.
Time for some fun learning!
