    My personal curriculum covering basic CS topics. This might be useful for self-taught developers... A work in development! This might take a very long time to get finished!

    I'm currently going over the subjects listed in the teachyourselfcs and they say they had their guide updated extensively about 2 years ago and still they haven't ruled out those decade old lessons. So, I consider LISP is there is teach the basics of programming but not the language itself, just like you described. To sum up, it's not about the programming language, it's about the programming concepts that is essential when coding. Am I right? What do you think?
