Details

We're continuing on with Chapter 2 (although we may still work on problems from Chapter 1) and introducing pairs and lists. In particular, we're working through Section 2.1 (http://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/full-text/book/book-Z-H-14.html#%_sec_2.1) and Section 2.2 (http://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/full-text/book/book-Z-H-15.html#%_sec_2.2)

If you've never joined us before, please note that you're welcome to pop and and we'd love to have you. Just ensure that you're comfortable with Lisp-type programming and the material covered in Chapter 1.

After a short discussion of the material covered in the book, we'll break out into pairs for a strict coding dojo: I'll present a few problems from the book and let you work on them in pairs. After a few minutes, someone with a solution will walk us through it. Use of google, twitter, wikipedia, et cetera is strongly discouraged.

Our group has a github account (https://github.com/london-sicp-study-group/), too.

Please read the section or watch lecture 2B: Compound Data (http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-001-structure-and-interpretation-of-computer-programs-spring-2005/video-lectures/2b-compound-data/) before coming.
