Ecological modeler. Shiny developer. Tidyverse denizen. Scheme enthusiast.
I recently decided to switch my attention from learning Racket to Chez Scheme. One of the reasons that I chose Racket was because of how easy it is to get up and running.
Over the last 6 months, I have been learning Racket in my free time. One of my first posts on this blog laid out my reasons for choosing Racket.
In a previous post, I used GUI toolkits to make progress bars in R and Racket. However, I usually prefer the ASCII progress bars of the progress package in R.
As an impatient person and an insecure programmer, I typically use progress bars for any code that takes more than a few minutes to run.
In learning about reading CSV files in Racket, I have started to reconsider whether storing small(ish) datasets in CSV files is the best default behavior.
