SICP Challenge

The SICP study group met today. We agreed to do the following:

  • read a section of the book.
  • solve the exercises in the section.
  • see the videos.
  • come with doubts/insights etc for the next meetup.
We agreed to meetup once in 2 weeks.

So, here I am, (re)starting the SICP from today. Hopefully this time I will complete the book. I am very tempted to do the exercises in clojure, so that I won’t copy the code as it is from the text. I am not sure whether future chapters can become difficult for me  because of this, but I think I will give it a try with clojure. Also I believe I will need only a subset of clojure so that use only the fundamentals and no advanced facilities.

Here are some of the available resources that I plan to use:

My solutions will be available in this github repository.

Of course, I/we are not the first to do this. Here are some of the other people who have attempted this and have documented it (much better than I could ever do) on the web.

For those who are using Scheme, this page will be of great help.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
