The survey questions below are not meant to constrain respondents. Some questions will not apply, and some things you might want to share may not answer any question. Say it anyway! There is no need even to respond in Q&A format. Just explain how you got to Lisp and what you think of it.
When did you first try Lisp seriously, and which Lisp family member was it?
Many of us had multiple run-ins with Lisp before it "stuck". The "stick" date is of most interest, but you can share earlier encounters if you like.
What led you to try Lisp?
What other languages have you been using most?
How far have you gotten in your study of Lisp?
I know this is hard to quantify. Just wing it.
What do you think of Lisp so far?
