Okay, team: I'm looking to get into lisp programming, but I'm not sure where to start. Any recommendations on which dialect to go for and learning materials?

I've previously had a little dabble with common lisp, but didn't find any great learning resources, so it didn't quite have time to solidify.

After a cursory read through the Wiki articles, scheme seems like a good choice too. Maybe Little Schemer would be a good read?

@threv @hartmann if you're going to read SICP, there's a sicp collection for Racket to replace MIT Scheme, and an accompanying sicp-pict collection, which I've been using to work through SICP recently

@threv @aliasless Sweet!

Yeah, SICP has definitely been on my radar, but Racket less so. Looking into it though, it looks quite interesting---especially Typed Racket. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!
