I got inspired to answer the questions posed to F# experts on "Why F#?". I have no claims to be an F# expert but I thought the questions were interesting.
How and when did you get started programming in F#?
I believe I started to look at F# around 2008. I am a language-curious person and was at the time working as a .NET developer so I naturally was excited when discovering F#.
How long did it take before you could code real world apps as much or more productively as in C#?
