238Re: [feyerabend-project] An introduction to Lisp
- Aug 21, 2002Hi all,
I'm a fan of all the List/CLOS papers I've read, but never became a friend of Lisp as an everyday tool. (That is, I never used it outside school.)
If you were the CTO of a startup, and you would have to convince your CEO to start development efforts using CLOS rather than Java, how would you argue its case?
This is a serious question. When discussing this, I've always ended up choosing Java. Please convince me otherwise.
PS: This is meant primarily as a social/managerial question, not a technology question.

In February we had a short discussion on Lisp on the pattern discussion

strange syntax, and so on.
During the past few months I have digged deeply into Common Lisp and
Scheme, and in order to give something back to the community (and get
some ideas out of my head) I have written an introduction to Lisp. It
can be found at http://www.pascalcostanza.de/lisp/guide.html. I hope you
find it useful.
All the best,
