Hi, myself and my friend Liam Irish were considering working on this portion of the hack-a-thon.
So I'm throwing it out there, I noticed that Mark Fredrickson is already on the list for Ruby.
Great! I know Peter Bex also expressed a willigness to help. The more help the better. I have absolutely no intention of monopolizing this work! I would encourage you to add your name(s) to the list. Also, Mario is encouraging people to add profile pages, and this might be a good time to do both.
We both have extensive "real world" experience with Ruby as a language, might not be so
strong on the scheme side, but could possibly lend a hand in fleshing this out.
Cool. I have less Ruby experience, but I agreed to give a presentation on Scheme to my local Ruby user's group. I would greatly value your experience.
I love the "Chicken for X Programmers" I think that this is precisely the kind of thing Chicken
needs to gain more exposure. I welcome any comments suggestions on this.
Neither a comment nor suggestion, but a question: As a Ruby programmer, what would you like to see in an introductory document? I was brainstorming ideas tonight, and I find it hard to decide whether to focus on very specific topics (e.g. "Instead of a Hash class, you can use (make-hash-table)") vs. higher level concepts (e.g. "Blocks are like anonymous functions.").
I suspect these intro docs will be a combo of the two.
