10th European Lisp Symposium

:: Racket, IT, Scheme, Common Lisp, Veranstaltungen

Last year my brother Stephan and I attended the European Lisp Symposium (ELS) for the first time. It was a great event and therefore we decided to come to this year’s symposium. It took place in Brussels from April 3 to April 4.

I thought that combining these binaries with a minimal Docker container could give me a very small deployment. So here are my steps:
