Sorry, I've been too busy to get to the email list. Just found this.

I use racket extensively in my client work. The only trouble is, most of my
work is website oriented, so my clients aren't much aware of it. Most of my
clients are small business owners and I build/manage their web properties
for them. If I didn't have racket as my secret weapon, i would be spending
90% of my time building and managing their websites instead of 10% of my
time. This allows me to actually focus on satisfying their business needs
instead of trying to keep up with them.

I have on occasion provided applications that they use in house. One of my
customers needed help costing large steam pipe sections used in power
generation. I whipped up a very simple racket application that helped them
compute the surface area of these piping sections. They did not know or
care what language it was done in, but racket allowed me to build an app in
about 2 days instead of who knows how long otherwise....

Also most of my clients are not technically savvy so they don't really care
much which languages I use for them. If I could actually find someone to
say "hey we need this done in racket" that would just be fantastic. I like
working in racket so much more than anything else, I would almost pay to do
it. :-)

I'm always open to do racket based project work / consulting and am very
interested in getting racket based work.
