European Lisp Symposium in Milan
had several slots in the programme for lightning talks -
short, high-adrenaline, sometimes impromptu presentations about all things
I loved the format because of the wide variety of topics presented. Also, this gave me the
unique chance to present to this audience of hardcore Lisp geeks how we are using
Common Lisp in our flagship 3D CAD product, CoCreate Modeling. Since I only had a few
minutes, all I could do was skim over a few topics, but that's still better
than a poke in the eye with C#
Not many in the audience had heard about our project yet, so there were quite a few
questions after the presentation. Over all those years, we had
lost touch with the Lisp community a bit - so reconnecting to the CL matrix felt just great.

those include test code.
