a simple suggestion on IRC turned into a quick compilation of useful
resources related to learning Guile, and thanks to the welcoming
community, quickly developed into the following idea...
Implementation time: about one hour for the bulk of it. (counter
already started ;o) Serious time and resources could be thrown at it
with sufficient interest and some funding, but to get started, nothing
Given the current effort of the GNU project to introduce a GNU
Development Network, and the central role Guile is given in the GNU
project as the interfacing language of choice,
1. Make a wiki page at http://libreplanet.org/GNU/Guile
That page would contain a short introduction to Guile, for people to
get into it according to their available time (inspired by
- no time: http://abstrusegoose.com/249
- minutes: http://www.web-artanis.com/scheme.html (maybe a specific
entry* for Guile could go to http://learnxinyminutes.com/ ?)
- hour: http://www.gnu.org/software/guile/docs/guile-tut/tutorial.html
- days: ? Maybe
be interesting to update/adapt?
- weeks/months: fork
(ulysses says it would take him a year to write it)
- years: http://www.gnu.org/software/guile/
"The community lives on IRC and email." (link, link)
* inspiration: http://bzg.fr/learn-emacs-lisp-in-15-minutes.html
2. Move http://www.gnu.org/software/guile/ideas.html to the wiki
Ideas are cheap: that's typically something very suited for a wiki, so
that anyone can edit the page without having to bother a webmaster
into the process. Cut the middleman.
Tasks for the webmaster: link to the wiki :)
3. Make a http://libreplanet.org/Group:Guile
That way people can advertise the language, and give other people
awareness of the community. That could as well make it easier to find
"Guilers near you" and other co-learning groups.
3.1 Make a "Guile badge" to link to the Group:Guile
That should reflect the liveliness and humor of the community.
