My name is Elliott Brown and I am a senior systems engineer, programming and database developer in the Toledo, OH area of the United States of America.
I architect, design, and develop critical infrastructure and platforms for software finance companies in the U.S. – focusing on data integrity and high availability. I also work with charities local to the Toledo, OH area that assist with and focus on the development of youth, especially youth in underprivileged and underrepresented groups.
My goal with this candidacy is to ensure the long-term programs of the F# Software Foundation can find successful methods for self-sustainment. The FSSF initiatives, such as the Mentorship program, Diversity and Inclusion initiatives, and other programs, deserve being put in a position where they can receive long-term success and support.
My secondary goals are to ensure the F# Software Foundation has pointed direction, instead of aimless wandering about itself.
I believe the F# Software Foundation’s job is not just to develop software, but to encourage and develop the community around the F# language. I believe that we should focus F# Software Foundation resources on goals aligned with that purpose.
