Scheme Programming Course:
Scheme is simple language to learn and is not as complicated as C or Java. Scheme is of interactive nature similar to that of python and ruby. In this course, we will be using the Racket interpreter which was previously known as Doctor Sceheme and Later as PLT along with Notepad plus plus. Scheme is of challenging nature and requires practice to understand it fully.
This course will take you through the basics and develop your ability to use scheme to its full potential. Although some Scheme systems were inefficient and slow, but that is not the case with Racket. If you are an experienced programmer, you may be better with some IDLE rather than using the interpreter. The Racket interpreter is for pure beginners so as to get a good hold of the foot base for scheme. Scheme is a fully syntactic language. Scheme involves a lot of procedures.
Scheme also allows programmers to define various syntactic forms, or syntactic extensions, by writing transformation procedures that determine how each new syntactic form maps to existing syntactic forms. Scheme was developed from Lisp. Thus, the treatment of values, other data types, symbols, lists, and writing of apps and programs are similar to that of other Lisp languages.
Along with the above, you will be developing the proper way to code and this will form the basics for other languages as well. You will also be learning multi-paradigm, lexical scoping and will also develop a habit of strong and dynamic typing discipline. If you have basics of Python or Ruby, it will be extremely easier to learn because programs in scheme are built using keywords, variables, constant data, structured forms like numbers, string, vectors, byte-vectors and characters, whitespace, and comments. Thus, overall scheme is extremely easier to learn provided you do careful study and practice.
