Same here (I don’t have a Microbit, just the Raspberry Pi) and I am getting an Arduino soon because I am in the Robotics After School Group in my school


#124

Same here!!! XDXDXD


#125

Ooh cool.
I was gonna do an Arduino science fair project, but then I didn’t because I had WAY to much stuff to do…


#126

>Not including lisp.
>Including “C+”

This makes me depr.essed…


#127

Ah yes, the lisp that is not lisp.


#128

I said before that I made huge mistakes with the poll. Please read.


#129

Then who is the lisp that is the lisp?


#130

Actual lisps, such as scheme or Common Lisp.
The point is that Julia takes a lot from lisp, but lost (some of the most fundamental) parts of it to make it more “understandable” for non-lisp users, however it is much more powerful than an ordinary programming language (though much less powerful than lisp) so many people think it is a great programming language (though clearly Lisp is the superior programming language.)


#131

lisp is a family of programming languages that is considered the second oldest programming language.


#132

All comp languages are equal. Some are more usuful in some certain cenarios.


#133

That is personal opinion of greatness, that doesn’t look very good here.


#134

I used to think the same way, until I used lisp.
(Though your statement is technically true—all turing complete langauges can solve the same set of problems.)


#135

And what makes you think I havent used lisp? Exactly?
And technically, some can be more usuful or convenient than others. Why find a way to integrate Java into HTML when you can use JS for the same thing?


#136

Since you don’t consider it the greatest language, one must assume that you don’t truly understand lisp.

Here’s a resource for non-lispers to understand lisp: http://www.softwarepreservation.org/projects/LISP/book/LISP%201.5%20Programmers%20Manual.pdf


#137

Do. Not. Make. Assumptions. About. Me. EVER.


#138

That is overestimation of something. Some people have different points of view than you do, so don’t go saying that.


#139

But let me ask you, is it true that you haven’t used lisp, or had I been wrong?


#140

He is just messing with you.
Please, I don’t want a flame war here since I am already smelling smoke made by lisp, so…

#141

I have used lisp a few times. I do not consider it to be “superior”


#144

Sorry all for this smoke in this official topic, I will try to stop it.
Going back to the topic on hand;

Wow! Me and my teammate are going to do a mini-drone using Arduino in Robotics after school…
