Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, May 9th from 7:00 to 9:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church.

Peter Seibel presents: "Practical Common Lisp"

"Should we vacation in Bali or Monaco?" the query put forth to Miss September. "Well Peter," she says with perfect lips "Bali has better food, but Monaco has the 'Sushi-Girl Backrub Team'".

Indeed life can be a chore, for these are the daily tortures of the Productivity Winners of the 16th Annual Jolt Product Excellence Award in Technical Books!

Miss September giggles: "What were you thinking when you decided to write a book on Lisp 2005?"

"I wasn't thinking that it would be the #1 top selling Lisp book on Amazon."

"Nor was I thinking that it would go as high as #2 in the Languages & Tools category, #4 in Programming, #11 in Computers & Internet, and #543 in all books."

"I also wasn't thinking that Apress would have to do a 2nd printing, they were really grumpy about that."

"...and I never dreamed I'd have such a deep appreciation for backrubs and Balinese food."

Peter Seibel is an ex-Java programmer who quit his job to buckle down and finally learn Lisp, shortly thereafter he completed "Practical Common Lisp". Having finished the book, Peter is now available for consulting projects--Lisp and otherwise--as the chief monkey of Gigamonkeys Consulting. He is currently serving on he Board of Directors of the Association of Lisp Users.
