I am extremely pleased to be able to announce that I have started a two month sabbatical from my current employer, SRT Solutions to join Microsoft Research’s Try F# team as they push towards release. Enormous thanks are due to Dianne Marsh, Bill Wagner, and the rest of the team at SRT for stepping up and allowing me to take this opportunity on very short notice. They rock. Kudos are also in order for the team at Microsoft Research for reaching out to the F# community for help with the site. I’m really excited about this opportunity, and I hope it will be a win-win-win for everyone!
One of my first tasks is to investigate possible extension points that advanced users can use to build more sophisticated tutorials/demos/presentations, so if you have any ideas, feel free to shoot them my way! Of course, if you have any other feedback on the preview version of the new Try F#, I’d love to hear it.
Thanks again to everyone who helped make this happen, and thanks to those of you who have already offered support. I’ll do my best to write some new blog posts based on my experiences, but no promises!
