Who am I?
I am Kunjan Dalal (kunjee for friends and tweeps). Founder of Fuzzy Cloud, F# Speaker / Worker / OSS Contributor from India. I am also a maintainer of not so awesome awesome-fable project. I have also a couple of other OSS project in F#, which are sadly not so famous. I love the web, mobile and everything around it. Especially if those are in F#. Recently more focused on Machine Learning aspect of F#. If you find some weirdly written code in ML.Net samples then it might be me . It has been 11 years in the industry, have worked in many companies with different technologies. One thing I can say for sure that, F# is kind of sweet language with even more sweet community around it. And I am lucky enough to be part of it.
Why am I running?
I am part of the world’s largest democracy and we are currently having an election for next PM of India. So, I thought of pitching in, in this election season. Jokes apart, I see a lot of potentials to grow F# community in Asia or specifically South Asia region. And will love to work more towards that side. Jet recently started a center in Bangalore, which is having an opening in F#. There is some serious work going in Japan and they have their separate advent calendar as well. Also, there is a good DotNet community in Singapore. I totally agree that this side might not have stars like Westeros but we do have very good potential to defend the wall.
Why vote for me?
If I like to put it in one word, I can say diversity. F# community is always super awesome to a different culture, there is no doubt in that. There are many F# stars I know, who are secretly from this side of the world. So, in any case, I am pretty sure your vote will not going to waste. No matter whom you pick.
