Who I am
Hello there! Let me introduce myself, with a few random facts. I speak with a strong French accent, live in San Francisco, and write code for a living, primarily in F#. Professionally, I am particularly interested in programs that use a bit of math to help make better decisions. Outside of work, I have been actively involved with meetups for years, and enjoy community building. When I need to get away from computers, I go to the gym for some Thai Boxing (sometimes I cook, too). I will vehemently argue with anyone who can’t see that a ham & cheese croissant is an abomination. And if you want to know more random facts about me… ask me anything, either here or on Slack!
Why I would like to be on the Board
I have been on the F# Software Foundation Board for 3 years now. I see the FSSF as a platform to give F# a stronger voice, and amplify F# Community efforts - and I see my role on the Board as representing the Community the best I can, listening to its various voices, and do my best to help it grow while keeping that Community a wonderful and special place.
If I am on the Board, what you can expect from me is a strong commitment to listening to everyone, and to keeping FSSF open and transparent. I intend to keep having office hours (almost) every Friday on Slack, like I have for a while now, to make sure your ideas and thoughts are heard. Being on the Board is a great honor, the least I can do is make myself available to all members.
Beyond that, I’ll do my best to help organize and run the FSSF programs. Specifically, I want to continue improving communications, to increase awareness of programs such as the affiliate meetups, mentorship, diversity or speaker support. I also consider a priority this year to complete a revamp of the fsharp.org website, in particular having a suitable replacement for TryFSharp, and will do my best to help make that happen.
With that said - thank you for reading, and again, ask me anything, either here or on Slack
