By Conrad Barski

Lisp has been hailed because the world's strongest programming language, yet its cryptic syntax and educational attractiveness might be sufficient to scare off even skilled programmers. these darkish days are eventually over—Land of Lisp brings the ability of practical programming to the people!

With his brilliantly quirky comics and out-of-this-world video games, longtime Lisper Conrad Barski teaches you the mysteries of universal Lisp. You'll begin with the fundamentals, like record manipulation, I/O, and recursion, then flow directly to extra advanced issues like macros, larger order programming, and domain-specific languages. Then, while your mind overheats, you could relax with an action-packed comedian publication interlude!

Along the best way you'll create (and play) video games like Wizard experience, a textual content experience with a whiskey-soaked twist, and Grand robbery Wumpus, the main violent model of Hunt the Wumpus the realm has ever seen.

You'll examine to:

-Master the quirks of Lisp's syntax and semantics
-Write concise and chic practical programs
-Use macros, create domain-specific languages, and study different complex Lisp techniques
-Create your individual internet server, and use it to play browser-based games
-Put your Lisp talents to the attempt by way of writing brain-melting video games like cube of Doom and Orc Battle
