F# Advent Calendar in English 2014

Update: Event extended until December 31.

Our friends from Japan have a beautiful event called “F# Advent Calendar“. Every day from December 1 to December 31, one awesome volunteer publish a new post about F#. What an amazing way to celebrate Christmas, isn’t it?

Lets support this initiative and do an English version of the calendar. Two blog posts per day is better than one, isn’t it? We need 31 volunteers, who are ready to prepare a post about F# and publish it on specified date.


Rules are very simple:

  1. Choose F# related topic for your blog post and send it to me on Twitter or leave a comment to this post.
  2. Prepare a blog post in English (about F# or using F#)
  3. Publish your post on specified date (according to the calendar)
  4. Post link to your post on Twitter with hashtags #fsharp and #FsAdvent.
