Cool:-) just watched part 1. Enjoyable intro. Look fwd to watching the next couple. Other than fun & cool what was your motivation for learning scheme (writing emacs macros?)
Hi Pete, thanks! A friend recommended Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, and after a couple of pages I was hooked. Also I am interested, one day, in writing my own language, so learning Lisp was a necessary prerequisite…
What implementation of Scheme are you using in this fantastic video, is it the one you typically use? I would like to begin learning this implementation. Thank you so much for your time.
Hi Johnny, I’m using mzscheme: https://github.com/racket/mzscheme . Enjoy!
