Racket has just received the
2018 ACM SIGPLAN Software Systems Award
We are honored by this award, but it belongs to more than the
group of people named in the citation. Many people have invested
and energy into this language.
The language is what it is now because of you.
Looking back at the modest beginnings in January 1995, we want
acknowledge some contributors specially:
John Clements, for constructing the incredible stepper back in
late 90s and thus helping distinguish DrScheme from all
pedagogic IDEs, for maintaining the beast for 20 years, and
taking on many other library projects;
Cormac Flanagan, for using PLT Scheme to create MrSpidey,
placed our little language into the web of SIGPLAN research
awareness way way back;
Matthew Butterick for "Beautiful Racket", code, languages,
teaching, and faithful evangelizing;
Vincent St-Amour, Ryan Culpepper, Paul Steckler, and Mark
for managing the Racket world of software for many years;
and Vincent also for his tender love and care for RacketCon.
Many, many others have contributed to Racket over the past two
through implementation, teaching, and research. We have
names at the end of this post, but our memories are probably
and, in recent years, the contributor community has grown
tremendously. This doesn't mean we aren't thinking of you and
you today --- and not just today, but every time we launch our
wonderful DrRacket and run beautiful Racket programs.
THANK YOU ALL. We are looking forward to many more years of
- Matthew with Eli, Matthias, Robby, Shriram, Jay, and Sam
