     Yoni will first introduce symbolic, conditional and meta

     λ-notation. Then he will briefly describe how such
     expressions might be represented by a computer. He will
     introduce the Lisp REPL and use it to explore a number of
     basic Lisp paradigms such as closures, functional programming,
     and Lisp macros. Finally, we shall look at the past and
     present of Lisp as a language.         

     Yoni Rabkin studied computer science and math and after a
     stint testing medical lasers has been a working programmer
