Hi LUV programmers,
This coming month, and for the following two months, Rob Hagan of MyInternet has kindly voluntered to host the programmers-sig talks, to be entitled:
"The programming language Scheme as a vehicle for programming abstractions".
The talks will be broken up into three sessions, being split over the coming three months.
Location / Date ----------------- MyInternet Level 8, Blackwood House 14-20 Blackwood Street, North Melbourne 7pm, Tuesday 24th June
Blackwood Street is the first on the left off Flemington Road, near the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
We will be going for dinner afterwards at the Metropolitan Hotel at the end of Blackwood Street (or possibly La Porchetta, near the Vic Market).
More SIG information can be found at http://programmers.luv.asn.au/
Session details ----------------- Session 1 (24-Jun-03): Introduction to the programming language Scheme - reading code fragments and potentially constructing same, and setting the scene for using Scheme as a vehicle for gaining understanding of a number of important programming abstractions. Session 2: (22-Jul-03): Recursive programming and the four key tricks, plus tail-recursion and you how can create tail recursive procedures. Session 3: (26-Aug-03): Higher Order procedures, including three key procedures: map, filter and accumulate. The rights and privileges of first-class objects. Note that previous knowledge of Scheme (or Lisp) is not essential for any session, though sessions 2 & 3 will be demonstrating 'more advanced' code.
