I am finally convinced to try out the Racket programming language after watching @cwebber 's #FOSDEM 2019 talk.

I have been looking for a Lispy replacement to #Python for a year now. #Racket is batteries-included like Python. You can also create executable binaries.
I'm not looking for efficiency here, since it's just for scripts I run on my desktop.

Though I prefer to use Emacs over DrRacket, I can see how it can bring down the barrier to entry significantly.

@njoseph_1 @cwebber I recently downloaded Racket as well - I just need some time to actually use it 😀. I did a lot of programming in Scheme in college and loved it.
