    Experience Report

    We (ClearTax) build a full product in F#, and it's been in production for two years now. This talk will cover our learnings from building this product – what we did well and what went wrong. We will discuss the joys and the challenges that come with using a functional language day-in and day-out.

    I want to share our journey, so the community can learn from our experiences and we can get feedback from the experts as well.
