Microsoft does quite a lot with F#. Microsoft builds and support compilers on .NET Framework and .NET Core, and also support F# running on Xamarin-flavored Mono. There is also the building and supporting of tools within the Visual Studio IDE, which is the primary way developers write code in F#. However, Microsoft is just one part of the larger F# ecosystem which is, to quote Don Syme, fully independent, cross-platform, open source, and multi-vendor. So, what’s up with Microsoft and F#?

In this (unfortunately not-too-technical) talk, you’ll learn about how F# is being invested in and viewed from within Microsoft’s Developer Division, the roadmap for F# tooling within Visual Studio, the importance of recent changes to the F# IDE tooling with respect to becoming a first-class citizen of Visual Studio, and the people who work on it.
