The ideal programming language for beginners should offer the minimum barrier between thought processes and their concrete implementation as programs on the machine. It should not be a ‘toy’ language - its structure should be rich enough to express complex computer science concepts without being awkward. The language should encourage good coding habits and students should be able to look at it as an extension of the three things which they have already mastered to varying levels of proficiency - reading, writing and mathematics. Do we have such languages? Yes - the programming language Scheme fits in admirably.

[Ed.- I call this the REAL Linux Gazette because it has the original staff, appearance, and high quality that it has always had. All of which the pretender LinuxGazette.com lacks. See this article for details, ]http://linuxgazette.net/issue97/moen.html]

This is a great article for beginning programmers- if you're interested in programming and not sure where to begin, I recommend this.]
