Re: [London-SICP-Study-Group] Tentative SICP Schedule

Hi

That would suit me very well going to ALL sessions.  Thursday is really good for me.  But what time.  I personally can do early morning or evening.  (Work... who needs it!).  So could do 8am start if anyone is keen enough or otherwise evening from about 6:30pm.

I am willing to be flexible.

Angus

Alrighty, folks, thanks for the response. Tentative schedule:

Thu 7  Nov      Ch 1.1
Thu 21 Nov      Ch 1.2
Thu 5  Dec      Ch 1.3
Thu 12 Dec      Ch 1.3

Thu 9  Jan      Chapter 1 Review
Thu 16 Jan      Ch 2
Weekly to Apr   Ch 2 - 3
(inc breaks for
travel, HN, and
 other meetups)


Assuming I read those emails right, that's 1 person strongly preferring ch2.  4 weakly-to-strongly preferring ch1, and 3 folks who are just happy to have SICP back in their lives. Here's what I propose:

4 sessions on ch1 **this year** - good for folks who never studied with us before, and for those who want a refresher.

Coming Jan 2014, we take a week to recap everything in Ch1, and then dive head-first into Ch2.  I think, depending on how many breaks we take, we should be able to start Ch3 (lisp programming with state) by that point.

Interested as well - (and (review sessions) (or (chapter2) (revisiting chapter1)))
Either way!

        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
