Tooling is often understood as a tricky and tedious area of software development. This talk discusses how F# makes tooling development fun again. In particular, we investigate a few F# features that are great for creating IDE extensions and report an experience on ensuring correctness at a large scale. We also take a quick glance at Open Source F# ecosystem and see how they remove pain points in daily development. The talk is presented using a case study, namely the Visual F# Power Tools extension.
