Pay Attention to Racket
This is VTFun's first Racket or Scheme talk, but instead of a tutorial, I'm planning a tour of a few key ideas from the 1950s to the present that every programmer should grok, and no language designer should ignore. I hope that each slide will be easy to follow, seem obvious in retrospect, and maybe make you a better programmer.
I'll expose you to a little Racket. A computer is optional, but it might be fun to have along, so I encourage you to head to http://racket-lang.org/ for an easy download and install.
About the Presenter
Anthony Carrico earned a master's degree in electrical and computer engineering, primarily in signal processing and computer architecture. He tried to learn to code at an AI company heated with Lisp and Unix machines. He went on to program Japanese music video games. His wife teaches at St. Mike's and he stays home with the kids.
We're a small group, so we don't have a food budget; you're more than welcome to bring your own to the talk, and we usually head into downtown Burlington for food and/or drinks afterwards.
Other ways to hang out with us:
Our google group, google community, and twitter.
