Little necrobump here, I did find exercism recently in my efforts of 
getting up to speed on racket, in addition to the racket-koans 
<> collection on github, which 
is great!  The idea of having real people give you feedback on the code is 
awesome.  That said, with the racket track there are only 2 mentors and 
this impacts the pace at which you can proceed, a simple little exercise 
may sit for a couple weeks before someone takes a look.  Looks like they 
need some more racket mentors over there ; ).

Even with the slow pace I still recommend it to anyone wanting to take a 
look at learning a new language, having real people give you feedback is 
great compared to just a unit test passing.
