Happy New Year! 2008 just flew by for me. And looking forward, there’s a small change I wanted to let you guys know about.
As many of you know, I’ve been the dev lead for the VB compiler team since Visual Studio 2008. A few months ago, I decided to try something new for a variety of reasons, and I decided to join the likes of Luke, Luca, Don, Chris, Brian, and Jomo on the F# team. Since September, I’ve been the "engineering" lead for the F# team, and I am now responsible for helping to ship F# in Visual Studio 2010. It’s been a fun journey so far – working on the F# team has been awesome.
As a result of this change, the coverage on my blog will shift a bit more to F# programming, especially over the next while. During the last few months, I’ve been learning more and more about F#, and I’ll probably blog a little bit about interesting things for F# from a .NET developer’s perspective that I’ve learned, and why F# might be interesting for you.
You can download the latest F# CTP for Visual Studio 2008 here.
And as always, feel free to let me know if you have any questions or comments!
