Constructed on the .NET framework by Microsoft, F# is a modern-day programming language that attracts developers with its simplistic coding style. There is an increasing trend of developers opting for F# as their preferred programming language.
Originally, F# was accessible only on Windows, today its spread across disparate environments. It can easily work with other .NET components.
Being collaborative and cross platform in nature, F# is capable of handling difficult situations with its robust coding. It is considered ideal for enterprise-level development, technical arenas and data analysis.
Though Microsoft is the original creator of F#, the F# software foundation (FSSF) is the one in charge of endorsing the language across communities. Being completely committed to F#, it takes care of the promotion of the language and building a vast community of developers. It possesses an effective mentorship program, free for anyone to join.
