I’ve been watching the Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs videos recently while riding the Caltrain and enjoyed it quite a bit. For some reason I can’t quite grasp, I find these fun . Maybe it’s the fact that these are 20 years old now and still terribly relevant (especially for functional programming), maybe it’s the look of the attendance, very eighties, or maybe the obvious delectation Hal Abelson and Gerald Jay Sussman have teaching. Anyways, pretty intesting stuff.
