Formatting F# code, There and Back Again

In recent years code formatters have done wonders in many languages. They can help a language by making it easier for newcomers on the "how should it look like". And overall, they can avoid pointless arguments in teams. In a perfect world, a formatter is available with the first release of the language. For F# this wasn't the case. In recent years the Fantomas project is rising to empty that void. And given the state of the language and ecosystem, it can be a tough climb.

Functional Programming

Join me in this talk to discover what Fantomas is, how it works, and witness the road to adoption.
The project is technically very compelling and touches the F# compiler itself.
And being a maintainer of the project has been very insightful in regards to my open-source journey.

I learned a lot along the way and wish to share this experience with you!

Florian is an eccentric developer with ambitions and a progressive mindset. With a strong affinity for functional programming and modern web development, he participates in countless open-source endeavors.

He is a jack of all trades with a keen focus on F# and tooling. In recent years he started taming the dragon of public speaking.
A brave new world in which Florian wishes to grow as well.
