Lisp Quickstart

Lisp is a deep language with many unusual and powerful features. The goal of this tutorial is not to teach you many of those powerful features: rather it’s to teach you just enough of Lisp that you can get up and coding quickly if you have a previous background in a procedural language such as C or Java.

Notably this tutorial does not teach macros, CLOS, the condition system, much about packages and symbols, or very much I/O.
