An appeal to support F# programming language

"Though we no longer accept solutions in all programming languages, we have aimed to support the most popular programming languages used in past Code Jam contests, and we are continuously exploring opportunities to expand this list in the future." https://codejam.withgoogle.com/codejam/resources/faq#languages

Dear Google,

Please consider adding support for the programming language F# in future Google Code Jam contests. To quote https://fsharp.org/ "F# is a mature, open source, cross-platform, functional-first programming language. It empowers users and organizations to tackle complex computing problems with simple, maintainable and robust code." We also have a great community! https://hackernoon.com/reflecting-on-f-in-2017-5ac67fb138ff

If it helps, the details for https://codejam.withgoogle.com/codejam/resources/faq#language-details would be very similar to existing setup for C#

I love Google Code Jam, it first made me interested in algorithms when I was a maths student (the t-shirt I won I wore until it fell apart). Years later F# has made me fall in love with coding again. It would be awesome to see a marriage of these two fantastic things.

Yours faithfully

Code Jam junkie and F# fan
