    People keep trying to push F# into a niche and marginalizing it. It would be nice if the message could get out there that F# is just as general purpose as C#. 

    If you do a followup, it would be nice to learn more about F# and Fable.

    Elm gets buzz for how it transpiles to JavaScript, but F# is a far more mature functional language than Elm. I'd love to know more about how F# and Fable could be an Elm alternative.
