  1. Pablo Meier

    An excellent introduction to programming, especially for those with no previous exposure Learning from this book first would have prevented me from having to spend the past year unlearning several bad habits.It achieves accessibility at the cost of verboseness frequently you ll want to page further on and you find the next example is only incrementally different This is great if you have little experience and wish to work your way through, but if you re trying to find the meat as I was it makes [...]

    Sum up A true gem if you are learning to program, but a bit too slow paced if you already are a proficient programmer.I had been programming for several years when I wanted to get into the functional way of solving programming problems which had begun to receive attention towards the end of the noughties with the success of new programming languages such as F , Clojure and Scala After researching a whole lot I found that this book had received a lot of positive critique, as a sort of noob fri [...]

    I liked the beginning but then I discovered you had to learn this basic programming syntax which is neither C or Java so I didn t want to do the examples and found myself not really learning.I would have liked it if it just presented theories and examples with the C language rather than some simplified program that you have to learn just for this book.

    This struck me as too slow, even going in expecting it to be slow and for beginners Is it for small children But then it seems too textbook ish and not playful enough.The Little Schemer, by the same author, is a better introductory programming book.

    A textbook on designing Scheme functions Good, but the title is rather misleading, I think I was expecting on designing large pieces of sotware.

    Apparently the only way to post a progress update in for Kindle is if the book itself is saved within the Kindle app Out of luck if book is available on Web I m starting chapter 1.
