For what it's worth, the intention with the structure of the Learn section was 
to put first introductory, prescriptive documentation about the language and 
what is possible to do with it. So:

+ Tutorials (Guides, etc.)
+ Reference manuals
+ Scheme resources

This documentation was supposed to fill some of the gaps that have been already 
mentioned in this thread and other previous conversations during the years in 
other channels. Unfortunately, the Tutorials section hasn't seen any additions 
since the day the website design was updated.

To me, the idea was to focus on building the Tutorials section gradually 
because, I thought, the reference and Scheme resources were relatively complete 
(except for the discoverability of SRFIs and how to use them in your own 
project when they don't come with Guile). I suggested something like this for 

+ Hello Guile: Getting Started (An overview of programming, and how to start 

with Guile)
+ Hello Guile: Let's develop a console application
+ Hello Guile: Let's develop a desktop application
+ Hello Guile: Let's develop a web application
+ Hello Guile: Let's develop a 2D game
+ Hello Guile: Let's package your software for distribution (with Guix)

I guess it is a matter of filling the blanks, which is a lot of work you have 
to enjoy doing and have enough time to do.
