This book is intended for anyone who wants to become a better Lisp programmer.
It assumes some familiarity with Lisp, but not necessarily extensive programming
experience. The first few chapters contain a fair amount of review. I hope that
these sections will be interesting to more experienced Lisp programmers as well,
because they present familiar subjects in a new light.
Written by a LISP expert, this is the most comprehensive tutorial available on the advanced LISP features and programming techniques. It shows how to program in the bottom-up style that is ideal for LISP programming, and includes a unique, practical collection of LISP programming techniques that shows how to take advantage of the languages design for highly efficient programming in a wide variety of (non-artificial intelligence) applications.* uses an innovative bottom-up approach to programming in LISP - an approach that is ideally suited to LISP and especially effective in dealing with unusually large or difficult programs. * offers a complete tutorial on valuable LISP macros and LISP macro programming techniques, including practical advice on when - and when not - to use macros. * shows how to put Lisp macros to work in a variety of real applications. * explains what makes LISP different from other languages - how to do in LISP what cant be done - or done easily - in other languages. * begins with two comprehensive chapters on functions and shows how to use functions to extend LISP. * covers embedded languages, showing how to use LISP for a database application and how to build a programming environment on top of LISP. * covers object-oriented programming and advanced data structures. * contains hundreds of working examples - ranging from single expressions to a working Prolog implementation.

The HDR Book: Unlocking the Pros' Hottest Post-Processing Techniques
When it comes to HDR, only three key ingredients are needed: hardware, software, and post-processing technique. Hardware is simple—there are only a few things you need to set up and shoot an HDR series. Software is vastly improved, making it easier for anyone to create an HDR image. The hard part is the post-processing technique. There...
Learning Website Development with Django (From Technologies to Solutions) This book is for web developers who want to see how to build a complete site with Web 2.0 features, using the power of a proven and popular development system, but do not necessarily want to learn how a complete framework functions in order to do this. Readers need a basic knowledge of Python development but no knowledge of Django is expected....
