Lisp in 10 Bullets 

The other day I made the claim that Lisp is the simplest programming language I have ever learned (for the record, the second simplest is probably Forth, which shares a lot of Lisp's elegance, albeit in a very different way). Well, to help bolster my claim, I present Vishnu Vyas's Tiny Lisp course - Lisp in 10 bullets. Not bad. I could quibble with a few things in there, but he summarizes it pretty well. The only thing I'd like to know is whether his project mate Venky needed any more than that to get going with Lisp?


Yup, he did get started on that small course, but took to scheme (and python) rather than CL.
