Racket is the most amazing language that no one's ever heard of. This seemingly harsh assessment is prelude to a discussion on programming language development, innovation, marketing, open source, research, Lisp, and education. While other programming languages have dominated the public discourse, Racket's influence on said languages is undeniable. I'll touch on some of these influences during the course of the talk placing them within the context of just what a language like Racket means within the current, and future software landscapes.

Fogus is a programming language aesthete with experience in expert systems, logic programming, and distributed simulation. He is a contributor to Clojure, ClojureScript, Datomic, and Transit. Fogus is also the co-author of The Joy of Clojure and author of Functional JavaScript and the upcoming release The Art of Chupacabra Husbandry.
