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
@loke @scitesy that is true. Though, I think I would need to see a clear cut advantage of diverging the technology before taking on the complexity of learning/integrating two ecosystems. There are also advantages to having the technology the same on both sides that would otherwise not be realized...such as sharing data models and validation logic.
