I just started to dive into SICP, I somehow missed this groups
formation on HN.
Coming from Ruby and I am getting a lot out of this - it changing the
way I look at programming (and FP). I missed a lot of the traditional
CS material, being self-taught, at least this way I am getting it from
the best sources that I wouldn't have gotten from any local college.
I am reading the PDF and trying to watch 1 lecture a night on youtube.
Its the original MIT class from the 80s.
For example... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQCx4QIUV70
I saw the more recent Berkley videos but I really like how the
material is tought in this version. He runs through it quickly and
lets you fill in the gaps in learning LISP.
Anyone else taking this route?
