The Hub goes live
I have been so busy, I haven't had a chance to announce one of the initiatives that I have been working so hard to complete. So here it is . . .
hubFS - THE place for F#
This is my first effort at an organized community site with focus on F#. Please visit the site to find articles, blogs, forums, code, galleries, etc.
I could not do this alone. I had the help of many people to put this site together. I can't do the list justice, but those that have helped know that I respect their works and talents and most of all, their efforts to get this place going.
Over the recent days, while this blog was under construction (and I missed this milestone), many of my friends and and hubFS contributors made certain that this would get the exposure that it needed. I'll list as many here as I can. Send me a comment if I missed you (as it was unintentional):
There is a great core group of contributors that have started to produce F# works. I hope that as time goes by, we are able to invite more contributors and build a base of competence in F#.
Please also note, that this is "THE place for F#". I make that statement as a simple gesture with the definite article "THE" in all caps. Dr. Syme and the F# team run the F# mail list server (along with Don's blog); Robert Pickering runs the F# Wiki and hosts a set of fantastic F# tutorials. There are numerous other blogs that have assorted F# works. To be clear, I want The Hub to be THE place to gather, but know that only a concerted effort with others can bring about our common goals. I truly appreciate the works of these others and want to be clear that as F# matures in language, usage and acceptance, the collective works at Microsoft Research, on Robert's site and at The Hub and elsewhere will all work together to make F# more accessible and hopefully provide clear information for those that want to improve their F# skill set.
I invite you to stop by The Hub and get informed on F#. Let me and others know what we do well and what needs improvement.
