The story of building great and open F# community

A session at MVP 2 MVP Sessions 2013.2

Tuesday 19th November, 2013

8:40am to 9:00am (PST)

open-source developers, Microsoft, commercial users of F#. The Foundation hosts a number of working groups that have greatly improved the F# story for data science and other areas and many key F# libraries are developed by the community.

How did that all happen? Why do things like F# Software Foundation matter? And how to encourage active contributions? And finally, can other technical communities take useful inspiration from what is happening in the F# world? You won’t get ultimate answers in this session, but we’ll have a great chance to discuss them together!
