Racket developers have been working on a new language built on top of Racket called Rhombus.

I’ll provide a quick introduction to Rhombus, look into what makes it different from other Lisps, and provide some reflections on my initial experiences with trying out Rhombus with a side-by-side Racket-vs-Rhombus case-study on a simple “real-world” problem that I was working on. Can a man learn to live without parentheses? Let’s find out!
