     112\section{What is Chicken Scheme used for?}
     113
     114As Scheme is a general purpose language the applications written in
     115Chicken Scheme are manyfold:
     116
     117As it is so easy to reuse existing libraries with Chicken Scheme the
     118lisp way, Chicken is a great prototyping platform!
     119
     120Others tend to write their system administrative tasks in Chicken.
     121
     122Database insertion, testing and applications can be done easily with
     123all the major (open source) databases supported.
     124
     125Easy as pie web applications using Chicken Scheme's webserver
     126\emph{spiffy} and the webframework \emph{awful} to deploy concisely
     127written but powerful web applications.
     128
     129Use the same technology to compile static pages using \emph{hyde}.
     130
     131Visualize your data using an easy X11 interface, SDL, OpenGL or PDF
     132extensions!

     190Great to have you on board! Chances are your operating system already
     191packages Chicken Scheme. Try that first. Once you have it installed,
     192you can try some code with the interpreter \emph{csi}.

     215to be kept up to date with developments in chicken you can read a
     216weekly summary called the \emph{Chicken Gazette}.
     217
     218For Chicken Scheme specific questions there is a newbie friendly
     219mailing list \emph{chicken-users@nongnu.org}.
