Microsoft MVP – Visual F#

If you’ve spoken with me or have been following this blog for any time you know that over the past year I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with the F# language. You’ve probably also noticed that fresh content here has been a bit, well, lacking over the past few months as I’ve focused on some speaking engagements and writing an as yet untitled F# book. I was very surprised, ok, shocked, when earlier this week I received word that I’ve been selected as a 2013 Microsoft MVP for Visual F#! I’m extremely honored to have received this recognition and will do everything I can to continue promote and advance this fantastic language.

I owe a debt of gratitude to the Indiana development community that I’ve been part of for so many years, particularly the user groups in Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, and Bloomington. Thank you for your all of your support and encouragement.

On a related note, if you haven’t read about the new language features or tooling support in F# 3.1 and Visual Studio 2013, be sure to take a look at the F# Team blog.
