Recommended Common Lisp tutorials.

Here are a couple of CL tutorials that I've recently rediscovered and I think are worth sharing:

The first is Chaitanya Gupta's tutorial on the CL condition system. The examples provide a good guide to how restarts work and how you can use them.

Next is Adam Petersen's tutorial on building web applications using Hunchentoot, CL-WHO and Elephant. It shows all the necessary basics from beginning to end, and I don't think I have to state twice that I like the no-framework approach to web development Adam is demonstrating. There's even a little use of Parenscript to generate JS. If someone asks for a tutorial on how to build web applications using Lisp, this is the one I'd refer them to.

Thanks for linking to my tutorial. Great to know that someone finds it useful.

I am sure it can still be improved though. Do not hesitate to mail me if you have any feedback.
