    SteelSeries GoLisp is a relatively complete implementation of the core of a Scheme flavored Lisp. It supports a Scheme style of lexical scoping, and includes a sizable number of core built-in functions. A
    macro facility is included, as well. Other than some of the more esoteric functions being missing, it should be usable for running code from SICP.

    SteelSeries GoLisp is completely implemented in Go. Our reason for building this was for use as an embeddable scripting environment for our Go application. It is very easy to run Lisp code from Go, either by loading Lisp source files, or by evaluating a string of Lisp code. Furthermore, you can easily add primitive functions, written in Go, in your application without having to edit any of the GoLisp code.

    I'll give an overview/intro to GoLisp before diving into how to integrate it into a Go app. I'll do some live coding with a simple demo app.
