To what others already have written I will add:

in Racket for solving a problem or seeing what the approach is.

Catonano identified already the lack of examples in the Guile guide. I
fight with that myself, so I created a repository with examples. Perhaps
I should somehow add them to the guide. I've not looked into how to do
that. Probably some commit in a repo somewhere for the guide:

Hope this can help!

If you want to create something the Guile ecosystem lacks, I guess you
can find things from other language ecosystems, but it is probably a
good idea to ask in specific about anything existing on the mailing list
and I don't know where else.

So far we have GNU Artanis and the very basic web server module(s). So
in the area of web development on the server side, there is probably a
lot of space for improvements.

On the other hand we Schemers are often minimalistic people in our
approach to programming. Or is that by accident?
