folks. I would like to get your help. Please accept me as your obedient student.
I wonder what the sentence mean. Below is the sentence which is from a computer programming book about programming language LISP.
"Lisp has attracted some of the brightest minds in the history of computer science."
Does "brightest minds" mean some good programmers? Does that sentence mean that Lisp succeeded to attract attentions from some, famous, good computer programmers?
Any explanations will be appreciated greatly. Thanks.
