Re: compiler errors - meaning the quality of the errors?

On another note, I see you're in Boston. Do you have any interest in helping to revive the Boston F# Meetup?

Hey! Gosh, I'm so sorry I missed this.

Not necessarily the errors themselves, but the error messages. Those two compilers are extremely helpful, and will often nudge you in the right direction, which as a total beginner is extremely useful. The F# compiler is a little more matter of fact about what's wrong, like most compilers. I think as I get more comfortable I won't find it as opaque, and it's not a huge drag on the experience.

I absolutely am interested - send me a message!
