During the event, Fábio Almeida delivered a presentation titled “SISCOG – 35 years of keeping trains on track”, sharing insights into our journey with Lisp programming and the ability to design solutions that help several rail and metro companies improve efficiency in the use of their main resources.
Building enterprise software solutions in a niche language such as Common Lisp isn't without its challenges, but we stand by our choice made over 35 years ago when we started developing AI-powered tools for our clients.
Why? Common Lisp delivers a 21st century development experience, containing all the currently popular features of more recent programming languages, with the added benefit of stability. Code written 35 years ago still performs beautifully today, with all the bells and whistles.
Common Lisp is an automatically memory managed, multi-paradigm (with both object oriented and functional paradigms being supported), and dynamic environment that empowers our developers to perform at their highest level, enabling rapid prototyping and system delivery.
In sum, Lisp is a powerful tool that enables us to focus on what is important: delivering value to our clients.
