F# Advent Calendar in English 2017

F# Advent Calendar is an adorable idea, which has become a tradition:

Each year we’ve had an incredible Advent full of F# and Christmas spirit.

Advent 2017 is coming, this year we have 52 free slots. Do not to lose your chance to reserve a slot and spread your thoughts and love to F# with the community. A lot of amazing initiatives developed this year: Fable, Rider, Ionide, SAFE, Visual F#& VS15, dotNET Core, VS for Mac, Expecto, Azure Functions, new F# books and much more! Join F# Advent Calendar today!


Rules are very simple:

  1. Choose F# related topic for your blog post and reserve the slot 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 a specified date (according to the calendar)

  1. I saw somewhere an invitation to tweet out this month with the hashtags #fsharp and #FsAdvent if one writes an F# post. It may have been a Tweet. Is this something you would like?

      1. Okay, sounds like you do not want contributors absent from the Advent calendar to use the #FsAdvent tag. Please correct me if I am mistaken.

      2. You are correct, but I cannot stop from using the hash tag. I do not plan to all new slots to the calendar this year, but I welcome to see you on the list next year!
