OMG! I'm so excited to announce that through my work at @spritelyinst we've published A Scheme Primer: https://spritely.institute/news/the-spritely-institute-publishes-a-scheme-primer.html
Direct link: https://spritely.institute/static/papers/scheme-primer.html
This document manages to serve two purposes:
- As a quick skim, it's a reasonable intro to "how to start programming with Scheme with no prior experience". Hey, tutorials are useful!
- But also, in less than 30 pages we manage to compress a TON of computer science ideas in a way that I think is really, really approachable.
The document ends with a code example, and full walkthrough, of a Scheme interpreter written in Scheme... in a mere 30 lines of code! It's like 3/4 of Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs compressed into a document you could read in an afternoon!
@pho4cexa @cwebber @spritelyinst I guessed that you were being light about a important idea and a decent request. I'd probably pay for an .epub too. When I couldn't move much I was tempted to pay for Beautiful Racket but couldn't find an .epub for reading off-line while lying on the back over tatami mats.
