In my opinion, two of the most exciting #fsharp projects are Fable (http://fable.io/blog/Introducing-2-0-beta.html) for web browser scripting and Zen Protocol (https://www.zenprotocol.com/) which is a blockchain for creating financial instruments. Fable has been heavily developed for years now and works really well when combined with the Elmish(https://elmish.github.io/elmish/) model, view, update architecture. Another interesting aspect of Zen Protocol is that it uses F* (https://www.fstar-lang.org/) to prove smart contracts.
I am baller at mining zen with my cpu on the zen protocol testnet. If only zen mainnet mining was so easy.
Regarding python transfer of power, I choose anarchy.
So SafeStack ( https://safe-stack.github.io ) no longer recommends Suave ( https://suave.io ). Oh well. Suave library development will carry on. Here's the announcement: https://safe-stack.github.io/docs/news/ Fundamentally, I believe this is a spat over how dependent the F# community should be on Microsoft developed technology. My view is that Suave wants a healthy, independent community that as much as possible uses F# community developed technology. #fsharp
I've been rocking the solarized light of late. There must be something in the air. I have been a solarized dark person for years.
Many thanks to Tamizh Vendan for making his exploration of Hopac public. "New Blog Post: Concurrent Programming in #fsharp using Hopac - Part 4" https://www.demystifyfp.com/fsharp/blog/concurrent-programming-in-fsharp-using-hopac-part-4/ #fsharp

An awesome new blog post from DemystifyFP on running parallel jobs (light weight threads) with Hopac (concurrent ML in #fsharp) https://www.demystifyfp.com/fsharp/blog/concurrent-programming-in-fsharp-using-hopac-part-1/
This gist is a great comparison of code written in F# compared to Python: https://gist.github.com/callmekohei/70f93fe66fbd23f22ed281797e9ceb27 Both, happily, are succinct and readable. With good editors, both have code completion. F# has the advantage of immutability, type safety, multi-core capable, faster, functional, etc. Python has a bigger, diverse and healthier ecosystem. Both great languages. #python #fsharp
