Roman Maeder and Computer Science with Mathematica

Hi,

I am reading this interesting book which apparently hasn't been updated for over a decade. Roman discusses the influence LISP and other earlier languages had on Mathematica's development. It's also comical that Stephen Wolfram has been saying for years that "one day we will all be programming with functional models". If you've used C#/.Net it quickly becomes apparent he was correct.

A colleague and I were discussing Mathematica and C#. We were quite surprised to see the similarities and how .Net is pretty much a functional programming model with direct borrows from LISP.

The point of the email was asking if Roman (or someone else) had considered writing a "Mathematica for C# programmers" book? Bringing C# programmers into Mathematica with all the ideas from C# and the amazing VisualStudio would appear to be win/win.

Thanks,
Paul
