SICP is a classic programming text (even if you don't program in lisp) and the breadth and depth of the ideas in the book will certainly improve your craft. I typically find it easier to learn such things when I'm doing it with others, hence the study group.

Each week, a few days before we meet up, we'll propose a section of the book and video lectures to cover. When we meet, we'll hold a "coding dojo" to work through the book's problems and/or exercises from MIT's OCW materials.

In this way, we can all make consistent progress together, and it won't be a big deal if anyone has to miss a week - so long said person continues with the reading!

The book is available free, online (http://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/full-text/book/book.html).

Video Lectures are online too (http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical-engineering-and-computer-science/6-001-structure-and-interpretation-of-computer-programs-spring-2005/video-lectures/).

Unless anyone wants to propose moving faster, we'll aim to cover Section 1.1: The Elements of Programming (http://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/full-text/book/book-Z-H-10.html#%_sec_1.1) for the first week.
