About Us

The F# Core Engineering Group is a technical group associated with The F# Software Foundation. We manage the cross-platform and open-source F# Compiler and Components repositories.

The group works cooperatively with major industrial and community contributors to F# to facilitate open-source contributions to the F# core components. For example:

Goals and Remit

See our Goals and Remit document.

Group Membership

Membership of the group is currently informal: it is a name we give to the contributors to repositories such as visualfsharp, fsharp, FSharp.Compiler.Service, FSharpLangDesign and this site, fsharp.github.io.

The group is not responsible for all F# core engineering, but rather helpto keep F# delivered and available widely through the above activities.

The convenors of the F# Core Engineering Group are Dave Thomas, Tomas Petricek and Don Syme. You can contact them directly, though it is better to use one of the public forums above.

There are many contributors to F# Core Engineering - see the repositories for ful contributor lists.

Some specific contributors in non-coding areas are: * Chester Husk III - Language Design Issue Curation and other contributions * Jared Hester - Language Design Issue Curation and other contributions * Kurt Schelfthout - Language RFC Curation and other contributions * Marcus Griep - Language RFC Curation and other contributions
