We organize a Scheme event in Europe at FOSDEM Bruxelles the 2 & 3 February 2019 @ https://fosdem.org/2019/
Money from sponsors will be used to help speakers come from far (or not so far) lands. We still need to figure out how the money transfer will happen. Add your name and a notice on how to reach you.
Even if multi-threading is not standardized yet, some Scheme implementations offer POSIX threads support, that allow doing things impossible in other dynamic languages like building database systems. Let's dream big and make the whole project a single code base and a distributed process using Scheme from the frontend to the backend and to run database queries. Let's see how the power of Scheme allows simplifying the architecture in a way that makes microservices and so-called serverless useless.

How to create web frontend using scheme. I will present my work using GNU Guile and BiwaScheme.
How fractalide.com built a cryptocurrency wallet and a graphical IDE for FBP using Racket's asynchronous channels and gui classes.
How racket2nix makes it possible to create local package installation environments for Racket à la Python's virtualenv or Ruby's bundle, but with the added power of native dependencies, and other even more advanced features.
How to write Domain Specific Languages in Racket and use them as a data format. Featured examples: Scribble, virtual-mpu (my own project), web-adventure (WebAssembly DSL)
