We're planning on holding the second version of RacketCon at
Northeastern in Boston this fall. This will be a one-day event,
featuring both short talks and tutorials. To choose a date that works
for the most people, we need your feedback.  Here:
http://www.doodle.com/6fk3avrf2vypici5 is a quick poll on which dates
(all Saturdays) you would be interested in attending RacketCon.
Please vote soon so that we can make appropriate plans.

## The Agenda

This year, RacketCon will feature 3 2-hour tutorial sessions, as well
as a series of short talks about development in and of Racket over the
last year.

Potential tutorial sessions include:

* Building a new domain-specific language using syntactic extension
* Using contracts in application development
* Adding types to an existing application with Typed Racket
* Parallelizing Racket applications with futures and places

Potential talks include:

* submodules
* WhaleSong
* futures and visualization
* distributed places
* optimization coaching
* Dracula and ACL2
* PLT Redex

If you would be interested in giving a 10 minute talk at RacketCon on
something you've built in or for Racket, or you have any other
questions, please send email to racketcon at racket-lang.org .
