Sicp Challenge Progress

2011 had been an extremely interesting year. I feel very happy to have made good progress on my Programming Language Theory learning. I am also qute happy with my SICP challenge project, which was my only noteworthy side project. I am somewhere in the initial portions of chapter 4 right now and it had been worth every minute I spent on it.

I also started reading many books connected with SICP and Programming Language theory, like TaPL and EoPL. Discovering the work of Dan Friedman was an eye opener and I hope to spend many many hours in the next few years learning from his books. I also read “The Little Schemer” and am well into “The Seasoned Schemer” and on to “The Reasoned Schemer” as soon as I am done. I will happily recommend these great books for anyone starting with Scheme.
