----------------------------------------------------------------------------

All day
          Bill of Rights Day
                  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Bill_of_Rights

          Altho the weather is much better on July 4th, THIS day marks
	  what was really important in our country's origin.

	  As British Prime Minister Maggie Thatcher said in her speech 
	  at St. Louis University about 10 years ago...   
	  "What made America different...what made it great...was you 
	  explicitly recognized these rights and put them in your Constitution."

          (From memory...I should go back and check the wording.)

      This Month: 
                 Introduction to F# 
		 Because we did not get to discuss F# in November, I have 
		 moved the topic to the Dec meeting.   We will be 
		 covering core F# syntax, types, project organization, 
		 parallel programming, and interop with C# projects. 
		 
		 I will use impressive words like "lambda", "closure", 
		 "tail recursion", and "active pattern" to convince 
		 everyone that I know what I am talking about.   If there 
		 is a particular F# feature you would like to know about, 
		 please leave a comment on this page and I will do my 
		 best to cover it in Dec.  
		 
      Every month: 
		 Developers should not align themselves with platforms 
		 and languages, but with principles and ideas.  
		 An "alternative" view of the Microsoft development 
		 universe--a view that challenged the "Microsoft-only" 
		 approach to software development.  He distilled his 
		 thoughts into four key developer characteristics which 
		 form the basis of the ALT.NET philosophy: 
		 1. You're the type of developer who uses what works 
		 while keeping an eye out for a better way. 
		 2. You reach outside the mainstream to adopt the best of 
		 any community: Open Source, Agile, Java, Ruby, etc. ,,,
