I concur. I didn't take this course while at OSU, but I should have.
Currently I'm dabbling in Lisp with the cl-opengl bindings as a hobby
when I get home from my daily job, and reading PAIP
(http://norvig.com/paip.html) on my subway commute. I took a small
beating from Baumgartner's 655(?) course where we had to implement some
of Lisp (and I had no idea what was going on really). Since then I've
decided I should learn Lisp on my own.
Any idea what the course book is for Curtin's class, or is it just all
his personal notes?
