(print "Hello World!")

Updated: Nov 12, 2021

Before Python, Perl, Javascript, C#, and Lua there was another super productive language that would grow and grow the more you learned. You may have vague memories of its name being mentioned by a wise old computer science professor or perhaps heard whispers of its name in a computer lab by a veteran grey-bearded programmer. Even if you've never heard of it, you've probably used a language that "borrowed" many ideas from it. This computer language is named Lisp. First defined in 1958, the language remains stunningly simple, powerful, and mysterious as ever. At one point it was the de facto language for Artificial Intelligence. Although Lisp is really a family of languages, one of the most powerful dialects is Common Lisp. This blog will mostly feature real Common Lisp code although snippets of classic Lisp may be featured in some of the writings.

(note the code samples in this blog will look better on the Desktop version of this website).
