In any discussion on how to improve your programming skills, one book gets more recommendations than any other: The Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (SICP) by Abelson and Sussman. SICP was the introductory computer science text at MIT for many years. But how much could a professional developer really learn from a first year CS book? Last fall I embarked on an adventure and invited folks to join me in a weekly study of SICP. We worked the examples and compared our answers. I am here today to share what mind-blowing concepts we discovered in just the first two chapters of SICP. Expect to see some Ruby code like you've never seen before.
