Who am I?
I am F# developer, functional .NET enthusiast and founder of Czech F# community group called FSharping (@fsharping). Talking about F# a lot, you could see me on last FableConf or F# eXchange, or at various WUG meetups / workshops in Czech Republic. I also co-organized functional conference LambdUp in Prague. I am father of two amazing daughters. Slow runner and terrible drummer at free time - currently waiting for “arrhythmia drumming” become the next big thing.
How can I help?
I am well known in Czech community as “the F# salesman”. I do F# sales on daily basis with customers, managers, colleagues, community newbies and even with friends from Clojure community. Not only because helping to bring new F# projects is part of my job, but because I love the language and community around. And talking with so many people I can also see where F# community can do better - mostly marketing. If you saw my lightning talk from F# eXchange, you know what I mean: F# is amazing, .NET platform is strong, and still many of us have to defend choice of F# not being “something strange, on the edge, only for mathematicians and financial experts, not well supported, …”
I would like to work on gathering success stories, use cases, testimonials everyone can use in their work to convince boss/customer/colleague that F# is 100% valid choice for .NET in 2019/2020. I’d like help with “F# infiltration” on business level.
Really. I don’t know who gave me nomination (you monster! ) but just want to thank you. It is a such honor for me and other people from our small Czech F# community. And you know what is the best thing? I am looking at the list of names for this year election and there are so many great F# stars, that you just cannot have a bad vote! And that’s great!
