Apple Cambridge

In the 1990’s Apple Computer acquired Coral Software. Coral originally developed a capable Lisp environment for the Apple Macintosh that eclipsed the half-hearted competitors such as ExperLisp. Soon it achieved Common Lisp compliance, and was later renamed Macintosh Common Lisp (MCL). MCL became the foundation for some exciting technology that came out of ATG, such as SK8 and Apple Dylan.

Under the direction of Ike Nassi, Apple Cambridge developed Apple Dylan, initially for the Newton PDA, and subsequently for the Apple Macintosh.

Apple Cambridge was disbanded in 1995. Several members of group went on to work on Harlequin Dylan, and later at Functional Objects.
