comment How much freedom should a programmer have in choosing a language and framework?
When you applied to the current job, were you said that company mostly used .NET? Did you agree on the language / platform you would use for development? I think these are important questions to know before applying. If you cannot convince your lead to use JRuby you can agree on ASP.NET MVC. You may really need it in future in your .NET inclined company. But if in addition you are a Linux/Mac user interested in Ruby/Node.js and not comfortable by any reason to switch to .NET/Windows, it would be unproductive to fight your team lead. You'd better leave and find a suitable place.

I used the extention for dr.Scheme (check the link). It suited me fine for learning purpose. This is what most SICP learners advised to use.

You could 'translate' execises. I am trying to do them in Scala. Sure you can try it when you are already comfortable with the text.

@SK-logic I checked it and now I agree with you. Once I looked through "DSL in Action" and there was Scala DSL example so I thought it is OK for DSL. Obviously Lisp, Clojure will work much better here.
