Hi Matthew,
I've been part to the SICP study group at the beginning of the year. I really enjoyed it and I really hoped you would reinstate it :).

I would be happy to carry on with the Dojos but I would start from Chapter 2.

Thanks,
Nico

Hey everyone,

So I usually keep Jan-Apr free for doing SICP stuff.  I wanted to know how much interest there was in the following:

1) Would people enjoy 1-3 sessions on the Ch1 material we did this year, as a re-fresher?

and EITHER

2) For Jan-Apr, how does everyone feel about working through Ch2 specifically?  (Or ch3 if we have time, but judging from past work, it takes us about 3 months to fully digest a chapter).

OR

3) Are there enough new people that haven't done ch1 that it'd be worth it to re-visit it?

Please let me know what you're interested in doing.  I'm happy to schedule 1-3 Weds or Thurs in Nov or early Dec for SICP work.

Regards,

Matthew Eric
