# About
-This is a test.
+Schemer is an experimental Ruby implementation of the Scheme programming
+language as defined in the [R6RS specification]( Its
+goal is purely to experiment and learn from the various topics and issues
+involved in developing a language interpreter.
+This idea was born as a personal project developed for the [Ruby Mendicant
+University]( during its Session 5.
+Along with the implementation of the language itself, an interesting point of
+this project is also providing an [article series](/schemer/series), a
+tutorial about the paths taken and decisions made during the design,
+implementation and extensions of the project. Writing this series will
+hopefully serve both as a guideline for myself and for others interested in
+a sometimes over-feared topic, namely programming languages.
