F# Advent Calendar in English 2015


Update(10/27/2015): There are a lot of people, who want to participate, so we’ve decided to extend the timeline and double number of slots. Please do not be shy and books free slots.

Last year we ran an amazing event “F# Advent Calendar in English 2014“. It was incredible December full of F# and Christmas spirit. Every day astonishing authors around the globe posted new F#-related articles. It was an extraordinary time.

December is close enough, so it is a good time to plan something special for F# Advent Calendar. Have you done something special this year? Do you have any unique experience you are willing to share? Have your project incredibly evolved this year? Are there any good ideas for the post, but you didn’t have time to write it? The time has come – it is right now! You have a chance to share your story with the globe! Join F# Advent Calendar and hurry up!


Rules are very simple:

  1. Choose F# related topic for your blog post and reserve the date on Twitter or leave a comment to this post. Please note that you do not have to announce the topic until the date.
  2. Prepare a blog post in English
  3. Publish your post on specified date (according to the calendar)
  4. Post link to your post on Twitter with hashtags #fsharp and #FsAdvent.

  1. I’ll be happy to do one again this year. Any date will be fine, so just pick an unpopular one for me 🙂

      1. I’ll happily do December 1st.

        What I also meant by ‘unpopular’ was that if you’re having trouble getting anyone to take a particular date, I’ll be happy to do such a date.

  2. Princesses in ancient Pakistan/IndusValley played light exercise for both body & brain, it’s amazingly similar to F# code! As can be seen in this painting of Princesses & F# (also on FB cover or fsSnip.net/sS)
