Dev Diary 2018-12-25

Is 2019 the year I finally grok Lisp? Man, I hope so. I feel like a lot of it is getting the built-in functions in my head, so it might make sense to do a function-a-day kind of thing. I’m reading Paul Graham’s ANSI Common Lisp, which has been good so far, but I’m thinking if I get stranded I might jump in on Peter Siebel’s Practical Common Lisp. I’ve found that I need some footing in “real” applications to appreciate the more nuanced stuff.
