Schemers is a study group formed to learn about the Scheme programming language and fundamental CS concepts using (among other things) the classic book SICP as a study guide. The full text of this book is freely available online, and we have a physical copy on our bookshelf as well. We have been meeting on Sundays at the Noisebridge hackerspace, but for now we'll be meeting on a weekday (most likely Weds) after work in the Downtown Mountain View area. Please monitor the discuss or schemers mailing lists for updates (read the archives (schemers) (discuss) if you'd rather not subscribe), or contact Johnm if you have any questions.
