Learning a Programming Language

I decided I wanted to learn a programming language. I was originally intending to learn something more similar to the ones I already know (C/C++, Rust, Python, Lua), but instead it was voted on Lunduke’s Locals that I should learn Scheme. I know a little bit of history about it; it is a Lisp dialect, which means (lots (of (parens))), which I am not a fan of. I know that Scheme was originally going to be the web scripting language, but companies wanted something that looked more like Java, so Brendan Eich invented Javascript (the bane of my existence). But I haven’t really tried to learn Scheme specifically, so we’ll see how it goes.
