Presented by:

I'm a Linux enthusiast and freshman at the University of Washington.

No video of the event yet, sorry!

Yep, that language you forgot about after Comp Sci 101 is still alive and kicking! We'll explore the present and future of this ancient language, with a focus on Common Lisp:

  • The general state of the Common Lisp language and development tools today, including some of the crazy things you can do with Emacs!
  • StumpWM and the Next browser, examples of useful Common Lisp applications for the Linux desktop.
  • Tools like parenscript which are putting Lisp on the client-side of the web.

By the end of this presentation, you should be inspired to go home, install Emacs, and start (meta-)*programming!

NOTE: I didn't realize quite how short this presentation had to be, so be ready for some sort of Lisp-related presentation that won't closely follow the bullet points above!
