Apply for the Applied F # Challenge
Applied F # Challenge is a new initiative aimed at encouraging students to comprehensive training, as well as to uncover more interesting, unique and advanced F # applications.
The motivation to solve the problem is to uncover more advanced and innovative F # scripts and applications that we have not heard about before:
We mainly hear about people using F # for web development, analytic programming, and scripting. While these are ideal directions for using F #, there are many more vivid and less lit scenarios in which F # has demonstrated its strength. For example, F # is used in quantum computing, cancer research, bioinformatics, IoT, and other areas that are not usually mentioned so often.
You have time to think about the topic for presentation, because the competition is open from February 1 to May 20 of this year.
What should you imagine?
Post a new article or sample project that covers the use of direction scenario in which you consider using F # as necessary or unique. Full eligibility criteria and frequently asked questions are listed in the official announcement .
There are several categories of challenge, from which you can choose:
- F # for machine learning and data analysis.
- F # for distributed systems.
- F # in the cloud: web, serverless, containers, etc.
- F # for mobile and desktop development.
- F # in your organization.
- F # and open-source development.
- F # for IoT or hardware programming.
- F # in science: quantum programming, biochemistry, security, and so on.
- Other examples.
Why should I participate?
All offers will receive F # stickers as a reward for efforts to improve the F # ecosystem and raise awareness of the F # strengths in advanced or open use cases.
Winning participants will receive a Recognized F # Expert title from the F # Software Foundation and a special non-monetary prize.
Each test category will be evaluated by committees that include many well-known F # experts and community leaders, including Don Syme , Rachel Blasucci , Evelina Gabasova , Henrik Feldt , Tomas Perticek , and many others.
As stated in the form of participation, you also get to get into the list of recommended speakers of the F # Software Foundation.
