Scheme Art Gallery

The output is art,
But what about its source code?
It's just as abstract.

Please vote for your favorite entry in this semester's CS 61A Scheme Art Contest. The winner should exemplify the principles of elegance, beauty, and abstraction that are prized in the Berkeley computer science curriculum. As an academic community, we should strive to recognize and reward merit and achievement (in other words, please don't just vote for your friends).

Cast your vote by submitting this form. Voting is due 11:59 PM on Friday, December 13th.

HK Peace

Hong Kong is part of China but using violence to solve the problem is not necessary. Hope Hong Kong people and the Beijing government can deal with the problem in peace so soldiers and people do not bleed.

Myself a poet, not a Schemer

In front of you, I am just a Function,
No matter how much Arguments we have,
I always Return my love for you.

Behind you, I am the largest Integer,
No matter how much you Mod ten and Floor Divi.
I am always positive for you.

We will go on trips, sitting in my Car, and my car's name is Cddr
We will travel everywhere,
we will see all the imaginary Cons-streams in New Zealand
We will see all the T.branches() in Amazon.
You can go down the car and ask if what's in your hand Is_leaf() .
If we ever get lost, please guide me with your Environment Diagram.

I ask me if I have time for a call, I would never Raise an Error
I will be straightforward as a Boolean
“Do you love me”, my answer Evals to True and True
“Did I gain weight?”, I say that will be seven equal equal two.

Our love is broad, we can define some-Macros.
Our love story is endless, we will never write a line of SeQuL.

I am not strong, I can't always perform Higher Order Functions.
But like a Lambda, getting jobs done without my name mentioned.

I don't have high EQ, some Announcements you make,
I have to do Lists of comprehension.
I will try my best to understand,
I will make some Repr() and Str() representation.
I may misunderstand you,
as I imprudently violate your Data Abstraction.
If you blame me,
my excuses wouldn't have Recursion.

If my life were a Link list, I'd love to spend my with you.
If my love has an expiration date, it will the end of eternity,
Until every circular linked lists have reached their Link.empty.

Just a confessional poem from John to All made CS61A to its endgame.
