What I've collected so far:
"Fear of Macros" covering syntax-rules, syntax-case and parse-syntax greghendershott.com/fear-of-ma

"Mini-tutorial on explicit (and implicit) renaming macros in CHICKEN" wiki.call-cc.org/explicit-rena

An old and now out-of-date in parts post to chicken-users about macro systems covering sc-, rsc- and er-macro-transformer, and touches on syntax-case. lists.gnu.org/archive/html/chi

The blog post @erkin is working on, which looks like it'll be great.

#Scheme #Macros

schemers boosted

I'd like some recommendations for tutorials on #Scheme macros. #R5RS syntax-rules for sure, but beyond that, er- and ir-transformers, or #R6RS syntax-case, it's all up for grabs.

The motivation is to try to encourage colleagues to move beyond defmacro.

I am livestreaming right now! Some minimal #scheme coding, talking about what I learned from @Gargron's run-down of Mastodon 3.0, a take I read talking about the "immorality of open source", and such! twitch.tv/codetherapy for the next hour or so (21:40-0700 to 22:40-0700)

Great news for , Gambit (one of the fastest) has some good news.

No more spoiler, check it out mailman.iro.umontreal.ca/piper

By the way there is an event around related to it. Check the mailing list or gitter for infos gitter.im/gambit/gambit

This summer I announced a competition to create static site generators in .

So far, nobody show up?!

Is there any interest for such competition? Should I announce the second hint and the third prize?

New SRFI on its way: Hooks. You know that little abstraction that makes customizing your favorite text editor? That is it!

A troubling thing about alternatives to s-expression representation: to date, I don't know of anyone who, once they understand s-expressions enough to advocate for how the alternative syntax is "better" ends up dogfooding it themselves. Instead, they use s-expressions.

Thanks for the warm welcome and the follow :)

This account will not follow nor follow back.

This account will be dedicated (or at least try) to display a broad view of the scheme world at large this includes but is not limited to the following hashtags and .

Best effort will be put to create new and original toots, that is information that you will not find by following the hashtags mentioned previously.

Have a good day!

If you're an opensource contributor, what are the projects you're proudest of having contributed to?

I am organizing a #Scheme coding competition where you have to build a static blog generator with a mystery feature (that will be revealed little by little in the next few months).

We have already one sponsor and are actively looking for other sponsors to reward the participants 🥇 🥈 🥉 (goodies, cloud credits, books...).
