lecture: About Scheme

An overview of the Scheme programming languages family


Scheme is a pioneer in the field of dynamic functional programming languages. It inspired many other languages, most prominently JavaScript. Backed by a slowly but steadily evolving standard (the Report on the Algorithmic Language Scheme) it continues to be used in various niches ranging from education to mobile development. It's also notorious for its splintered (some say balkanized) community.

In this talk I will give an overview of the language, its various implementations (from obscure to popular) and the communities surrounding them, as well as their philosophical differences.
