Papers We Love Belfast's book club has selected "Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs" (freely available under MIT licence, lots of versions available incl. https://github.com/sarabander/sicp-pocket) as our next book. The aim is to hold a monthly book club for programmers to get together and discuss a "must-read" CS text.

Trello board (https://trello.com/b/62VsZyZj/papers-we-love-belfast-book-club) to vote for upcoming books.

On July 21st we'll be discussing the latter half of Chapter IV (from Section 4.3 Variations on a Scheme - Nondeterministic Computing) and Chapter V. It is not required to read the book before attending the group, but recommended to get the most out of the discussion.

To help solidify some of the concepts we've been learning for the last few weeks we have chosen exercise 5.38 to work through individually. If you have the time/interest please feel free to bring your solution along and we can discuss.

Please consider joining us for lunch/coffee and some interesting conversation. Hope to see you there!
