Tom Prior here, a software developer from Ireland. After spending most of my early career programming with JVM languages using OO programming, I fell in love with functional programming a few years ago and haven’t looked back.
I explored Haskell, Clojure and Scala and I worked professionally writing Scala up until early 2017. I discovered F# about half way through 2016 and took the plunge into it later that year. F# quickly became my favorite language to code in so I moved over to .NET and luckily, I have been programming in F# full-time – professionally and in my spare time – since early 2017.
