Phil Trelford takes us on the modest journey of an open source project: Its original source code is less than 100 lines, but it has nearly 200K downloads and has been adopted by everything from hedge funds to the F# compiler.
Join Phil as he takes us a modest journey of an open source project, from early prototypes all the way to adoption and finally hand over to new owners, and plenty of fun and games along the way.
This talk will be about the Foq project, which is pronounced Fock-U!
It's a very small project, the original source code is less than 100 lines and the final version is still in a single source file. Despite it's conciseness the project has nearly 200K downloads of the Nuget packet and has been adopted by all sorts from hedge funds to the F# compiler.
This talk goes beyond the source to look at some of the many mishaps along the way.
