should still go through SICP, and work on LISP?

Posted 24 July 2018 - 12:42 AM

If I plan on learning Java/Kotlin, do you think I should still go through SICP, and work on LISP? It appears to be one of the main books for programming and teaches the main fundamentals of coding.

I mean, I think you can get quite a long way without having read SICP. If it interests you to read it, then go for it, but not having read it does not preclude you from being a good programmer.

Side question - why is it when I plug in 'SICP' to the googles, and mash the 'images' tab, do I see a substantial amount of SICP and anime images/memes/orwhatevers?

hehehe

I was thinking that, being an anagram, maybe Google is trying to help by assuming it is a misspelling.
