We'll charge at high speed through the following topics, with Clojure code to follow along with as we go (because there's no better language for implementing a Lisp than another Lisp)
- Parsing: turning text files into ASTs
- Fundamental Lisp datatypes
- McCarthy's elementary functions.
- Evaluating Lisp code
- Lambdas and lexical scope
- Your friend, the state monad
- Beyond Lisp: pattern matching and type systems
When we're done, you'll be ready to go forth and fill the world with Lisps of all shapes, colours and Greenspun violations for Great Justice. Also, it'll be good fun.
