About Scheme

(define-module (hello-world)
  #:export (hello))

(define hello
  (lambda* (#:optional name)
    (let ((target (or name "World")))
      (string-concatenate (list "Hello, " target "!")))))

Scheme is a tail-recursive and statically scoped dialect of the Lisp programming language. It was built to have uncomplicated semantics and several different ways to form expressions. Multiple programming paradigms, including functional, message, and imperative, find easy expression in Scheme.

Scheme was invented by Guy Lewis Steele Jr. and Gerald Jay Sussman. To learn more about Scheme, take a look at MIT's Scheme page.

Exercism is a great website

The reviews are incredibly helpful because they help me see things that I missed, learn about new ways and sometimes interesting discussions that can add a fun twist to maybe a simple problem.

Relaxed. Encouraging. Supportive.

I started in the Lisp family with Common Lisp but I love the elegant simplicity of Scheme and how it enables Functional Programming.
Fun. Challenging. Interesting
