Bryan Hunter: Which did you learn first Erlang or F#?
What attracted you to Erlang?
What attracted you to F#?
Today you’re in the elevator with 5,000 Erlang developers. What’s your elevator pitch for F# to Erlang developers?
About sweet spots… are these two languages good at the same things, or different things?
In what scenario would F# be an obvious choice?
In what scenario would Erlang be an obvious choice?
Are there scenarios where both F#/Erlang are obviously the wrong choice?
Is there a case for using F# and Erlang together?
How would you do that?
F#, is opensource.
What does that mean?
Is it opensource like Erlang?
Or less so?
Is Microsoft’s role to F# similar to Ericsson’s role with Erlang?
Both the syntax and tooling of Erlang and F# scare off beginners. Do you agree? What can be done to help?
I’ve heard both Erlang and F# described as industrial languages. What does that mean?
What would a port of F# to the Erlang Runtime System be like?
Something interesting happened at Lambda Jam in Chicago.
It felt as if F# had been welcomed into the larger FP community as a peer (first class member). Was it a liminal moment? What will come of that?
