I learned some lambda calculus today and wrote my first real function in racket! I had struggled to understand functional programming but wow learning some lambda calculus really turned on the light bulb for me.

Now time to stream some "Hell Let Loose" over at w0rmh0le Live!


@nebunez the legendary book Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (SICP) could be an excellent introduction to Scheme, it is often strongly recommended, I liked it very much.

Also, I think How To Design Programs (another book) might be worth checking out in a second time.

Both are freely available online 🎉

@rbd @nebunez
SICP is... intense. "The Little Schemer" is perhaps a better introduction for those who've never done any functional programming.
