What interests you in Lisp

I usually make use of a functional model in the code that I write in order to attack problems by decomposition and discard testing in favor of proof by triviality, so I like functional languages in general. Lisps specifically have amazing macro systems which I miss every time I write code in another language.

Have you programmed in any Lisp based language before?

Clojure, Lisp, Clisp, Guile

Strong typing or dynamic typing?

I go both ways

Have you heard of Multi-methods?

yerp

Relational, Object Oriented, Graph, Network, Hierarchical databases. Which is your favorite and why?

I find that relational DBs are easier to work with at least to start because they allow you to evolve your schema with your requirements.

Introduction

I'm a CS student at UT who fell in love with Lisps a long time ago and is still looking for more.
