  • Onboard AI - ChatGPT with full context of any GitHub repo.
  • InfluxDB - Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale
  • WorkOS - The modern API for authentication & user identity.
  • Giraffe

    A native functional ASP.NET Core web framework for F# developers.

    If you have an interest in F#, I highly recommend diving in because (1) it has a ton of things you might learn to appreciate in C#; (2) it has things C# cannot have. I do like some of the suggestions people have made regarding mixing your code bases, but I'll also say that building, say, endpoint routing in Giraffe is (to repeat myself) easy, simple, and elegant.
