¡Hola! ¿Qué tal?
Hi, everyone! How are you? I have become a member of this forum because I (want to) love Lisp. We are at the beginning of the romance, so it's like a blend of fear and illusion,
I'm not a computer science professional, in fact, my job is about words more than numbers. I'm just a guy who wants to make his own life happier. Now, a little history about me: Many years ago when I was teen I bought a book for learning C++. I spent many nights with variables, arrays and, of course, too many bugs! But one night, not, one day (because sleeping frees your RAM) I decided I should to study some Maths basics for understanding and writing better C++ code. Some years after fighting with blackboards and chalks, I found out that giving up formulaes and functions in order to (re)learn C++ would be really stupid. My mother language is Spanish but my "Nature" language is Maths, so, why should I to throw all that knowledge out? Many friends titled my ideas as "nightmares of the Reason" -"learn Java", "learn VisualBasic"...- but I know I'm walking on the sunny side of the street
That day I discovered Maths deserve respect and love forever. That day I decided I had to "speak" that ancient language called "LISP". If Lisp was a religion, Maths would be God. So, it's time to pray!!
Thank you for reading my presentation and a big hug for all "believers".
