SICP study group

  • Jun 14, 2014 · 10:30 AM
  • Nextspace Berkeley

We had a great first meeting[masked]-07. We decided that this group will meet weekly and will operate by lazy evaluation (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lazy_evaluation): the goals/assignments for a given week will be determined the week prior; we are not trying to have a fixed "course" that will take N weeks to complete.

The first week's assignment (due for[masked]) is as follows: (1) try exercises[masked] in the book. It's OK if you get stuck -- just try. (2) As a stretch goal, try to read both sections 1.1 and 1.2, and to try as many exercises therein that you can / find interesting. (3) Please (if only mentally) prepare to present something to the group: sharing your approach to a problem for which you got stuck / are seeking alternate solutions, your understanding of / difficulty with something you read in the book, etc.

See you next week! Note the change in start time to 10:30am.

    I'll be at a cafe in Berkeley working on SICP on Tuesday and Wednesday at 12:30 for a few hours. If anyone wants some motivation to study, send me a message and we could meet. I'll probably go to Au Coquelet.

    Argh! Something has come up, and I can't make the meeting. I'm bummed. Will post my answers to GitHub when I get a chance - and continue working through the 2.0 series of exercises. Will definitely make next week. I'm really enjoying the book.
