@SSHThis Do you know JavaScript? I edited this answer to use JS instead of Scheme.

comment How Scalable is SQLite?
@KonstantinTarkus For example, whenever possible I try and make sure that my schema updates are backwards-compatible with production code. I then update the schema in production, then push the code changes that depend on the new schema.

comment How Scalable is SQLite?
@KonstantinTarkus When it comes to deploying schema updates, SQLite isn't really different than other databases (like MySQL and Postgres), and the techniques used to update them will likely work for SQLite as well.

comment What is a 'Closure'?
@artemonster (let ((count 0) ...) is only called once, when make-counter is called. Make-counter, when called, returns a function with a reference to the value of count that it creates. If you call make-counter again, a new count variable is created and a new closure with a reference to it is returned.

comment Why is the top edge rainbowed?
This is correct, it was a reference to the original Apple logo colors. To provide some historical context, it was added in 2011 when Steve Jobs died and it has remained since.
