What Next

If you want to learn more about Scheme, these are the resources I recommend:


Sketchy Scheme Book Cover

There is a free version in called Sketchy Lisp but I recommend latest version.

A classic, one of the authors of the book is the author of Scheme language.

SICP Cover
Harold Abelson and Gerald Jay Sussman with Julie Sussman — MIT Press, CC BY-SA 4.0, Wikimedia Commons

I also recommend video lectures. There are two versions. I recommend original by Abelson and Sussman from 1986.

SICP MIT Lectures

This is an official website of the lectures.

They are not very good quality, but they are great, and you should have no problems in seeing the code on the blackboard.

There are also more recent lectures from 2010 at Berkeley by Brian Harvey. Only a little bit better quality.

UC Berkeley CS 61A The Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs, Spring 2010

Lisp Macros

If you want to learn more about lisp macros, there are two great books:

Scheme hygienic macros

NOTE: Unfortunately, there are no good books about Scheme hygienic macros. But you can read those documents:
