    I’m always happy to see Racket going forward. It’s the best language (I know of) for learning about languages, especially with How to Design Programs. I write Clojure at $dayjob but find Racket more enjoyable and cleaner as a Lisp.

    AFAICT Racket is a reasonable choice for real-world applications, but it’s not very commonly used. Common Lisp is more common (no pun intended) though still rare. (Anyone else hate how no pun intended is always a lie?)

      Oh, I’m cons-tantly making lisp puns.

          Perhaps you meant to say: “Yes, cons-table…”
