And now it's up to 22 revisions! Thanks for creating, Sam, and to everyone
who added to it.

I think linking to any class that makes educational materials publicly
available is valuable, but they should be divided into one section for
classes that don't require being admitted into a larger institution to
participate in (e.g. Bootstrap World, Coursera, summer programs for teens,
etc.), and another section for those that do.

Thanks, Matthias, and hope you all had a great time in St Louis. Looks like
it was a wonderful conference.

Can the wiki page above be directly linked off racket-lang.org, perhaps a
bit more prominently? I hadn't even noticed
https://github.com/plt/racket/wiki before; now I see the link to it kind of
buried under the Contributing column of the Community section. Perhaps it's
not easy to find for others too.

Thanks again for following up on this.
