A Story about using Lisp in a Startup Company

This is an interesting article I found in MIT open course ware.

Majority of the programmers look at LISP as "a weird AI language, with a bizarre syntax full of parentheses". I partially agree to that view 😛

In this article, Paul Graham tells how he used LISP in his startup venture in a time of high competition, and succeeded.

Moreover the article gives insight into the following quote by Eric Raymond:

"Lisp is worth learning for the profound enlightenment experience you will have when you finally get it;
that experience will make you a better programmer for the rest of your days, even if you never actually use Lisp itself a lot."


Although I'm still skeptical about LISP, I leave you with the article to be analyzed 😀
