This is a friendly and inclusive place to ask questions, show off neat projects, and participate in the life of this fairly awesome family of languages and its ecosystems. :racket: :racketscript: :star_struck:

This is not the only place discussion of Racket and Racket related topics takes place!

While the most active places for Racket discussions are here at the Racket Discourse and on the Racket Discord, but Racket discussion also takes place on Slack (sign up) and many other platforms - see ‘Community’ on the home page for more links: https://racket-lang.org/

Weather you are an experienced developer or just started learning how to program, the Racket community welcomes questions from new learners of all kinds. Racketeers are a varied bunch including professional developers, students, cs educators & researchers, scientists in other disciplines, entrepreneurs and hobbyists.
