Re: Looking for Lisp users/usergroups in Portugal

Hi Rui, Unfortunately i haven't managed to get any more information about portuguese lisp-related usergroups, maybe if we manage to find some more portuguese lispers we can think about starting some small pt community... i guess it will not be easy since the only portuguese lispers i've managed to f...

Lame topic - what about color themes?

Ehehehe, I know this is a really lame topic but... I was wondering about what's everyone's preferences are when it comes to emacs color themes. I personally am running a slightly altered dark-laptop theme. I also use emacs for php coding and i never really found a color theme that i enjoyed in php-m...

Re: question about recursion (easy)

I think i'd do something like: (defun cseries-list (n a) (loop for i from 1 upto n collect (c-series i a))) Not sure if that's more lispy than what you provided, but has the advantage of using the c-series function thus better code re-use. One sidenote is that you don't need to define the even funct...

Re: Any book/resources on Requirements Specs?

Thanks for your explanations Jacques, I must say this is all quite new to me, our shop's workflow with requirements until now was myself getting a verbal requirements run-through with my boss by my side in something like a 10-20 minutes briefing and that was it, it's easy to see that both the develo...

Re: CLOS usage

CLOS is amazingly powerful and above all it's amazingly simple to use when you look at how powerful it is. The other system i have played with, that seemed as friendly in it's approach to Object Orientation was Smalltalk but it didn't feel as natural to me since it enforces a strict OOP style and i ...

Re: Any book/resources on Requirements Specs?

Hi Jacques, thanks for your reply, i'll try to check that title at the local book store and see if fits my needs. I never thought of using a trac-like tool for keeping track of requirements. Can you detail a bit on how that works? I mean, do you use it to interface with the clients? And if so, how's...

For the last couple of years i've been working for a small studio as a web developer working on several small web applications. After spending so much time complaining to my superiors that i wasn't getting enough an...

Re: Looking for Lisp users/usergroups in Portugal

Hi aml, thanks for your answer. It's great finding out about those meetings at IST, actually about a week or two ago i ran into a very interesting screencast on emacs + slime debugging from a professor at IST (hmmm... just noticing that was probably you...) and i have googled trying to find some kin...
