Schemers is a study group formed to learn about the Scheme programming language and fundamental CS concepts using 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 meet on Sundays at 2pm in the Church classroom of the Noisebridge hackerspace. 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.
