Even though the F# community does an outstanding job at pointing out how awesome the language is, I have the feeling that many people in the broader "programming community" still don't know or consider F#. Customers don't know F#. At least not the ones I have spoken to the past three years. Time after time. I've had to explain what F# is, why we're using it, and why it's the best choice for their project. I figured that F# can use some extra experience reports and success stories.
Almost all of my coworkers learned F# from scratch. I learned F# from scratch. At some point, we hired someone who had never programmed before and taught him F#. All while delivering projects to customers. It was a lot of fun and we've had a lot of success. Needless to say, we also made a lot of mistakes. These mistakes make up interesting stories, experiences, and lessons learned.
