Would you like any help?

  • Spread the word, If anyone wants to experience a different way to solve a program.

What do we get?

  1. Why LISP based languages are so loved by programmers
  2. Functional programming paradigms which can we used in other programming language
  3. Knowledge you learn from this can be used in other lisp dialects like elisp, scheme, common lisp,…
