Who are we?
We are a group of independent individuals, not tied to any organisation, with an ambition to see
What brought us together is our aspiration to make an actual difference in the F# open-source landscape.
United we can take this F# ecosystem to the next level. By hand-ons collaboration and targeted efforts.
Enter the hive
The world of open-source software can be quite overwhelming to get your feet wet in. There is a lot to learn and you might not be confident that you can contribute actually code changes. Just like when starting a new job, you need to learn a new codebase. An open-source project is no different. You can read more about this experience in Edgar’s testimonial. And that is why we want to invoke our collective hive-mind to help people get started. We want to guide you as best as we can to scratch your own itch in the open-source space.
What to contribute?
Literally anything (within reason 😸) you want to see improved in your daily F# experience. Be it a compiler feature, tooling improvement, performance increase, … There is so much work left to do in the F# eco-system and there for sure is something we can do that will rock your boat.
Convincing your boss?
In practical terms, you should see this initiative as two things: educational and an attempt to improve daily productivity.
There is a lot you can learn from pair/mob programming with seasoned F# developers from all over the world. The diversity of backgrounds can broaden your perspective and genuinely make you better at your job.
Being able to solve outstanding problems that hinder your day-to-day flow, will reward itself over time.
