Domi-arigato, Mr Roboto?
I'll probably get the website fully functioning again over the weekend (with uploading of new issues + comment section). Also I'm looking for someone who might be interested in helping grow the newsletter from a marketing/growth perspective (attracting more subscribers + finding sponsors). There's a ton I'd like to do, but I'd rather focus on the content of the newsletter itself. If you're interested, or know someone who is, reply to this email or reach out to me at [email protected] Last issue of the week, hope y'all have a lovely weekend! Here it is.

Yep, another article about Lisp. What can I say, it's a fascinating family of languages that I think most people who write code should at least take a shot at learning. Anurag Mendhekar's lengthy article presents some of the advantageous of using/learning a Lisp language; specifically that it's lambda calculus based, call-by-value oriented, mostly functional, dynmically typed, and s-expression based.
