New CLIPS book

There's a new CLIPS book in town: Adventures in Rule-Based Programming by Gary Riley. You'll find it on Amazon.

Gary was a primary developer of CLIPS and is currently its keeper. CLIPS is an expert system language developed by NASA in the 1980s. CLIPS is now in the public domain and is featured in Chapter 6 of my book, Strange Code: Esoteric Languages That Make Programming Fun Again.

I just received Gary's book and read through the preface and Chapter 1. The style is fun, light, and easy to read. The book develops a text adventure game, chapter by chapter. I could have used this book decades ago when I first started exploring CLIPS.

I'm looking forward to working through the text. If you liked Strange Code, I suspect you'll like Adventures in Rule-Based Programming.
