About


About FsLab

FsLab is a center of gravity for data science projects written in and/or for F#. Our vision is to provide a safe haven for these projects to align their APIs, find new contributors and/or maintainers, and catalyze the formation of a coherent, productive data science environment for F# and .NET.

How does it work?

FsLab in its current form is quite new, which also means that there are no strong guidelines and established processes - which might actually be one of its strengths. We currently offer projects to "join" FsLab in 3 ways:
  • Make your project a FsLab project by moving the project to the FsLab github organization. Depending on the size of your project, this can increase the visibility of your project the most. You will of course retain ownership of the repo, but FsLab admins will have access as well (and can serve as backup maintainers). Examples of projects that took this road are FSharp.Stats and  flips. Please note that this does not mean that FsLab admins are automatically obliged to maintain your project - it is still yours. 
  • Make your project a FsLab-endorsed project by creating high quality tutorial and blog post content for FsLab and/or using the FsLab theme for your project documentation

How will we use your contributions?

First of all, thank you for considering financially supporting FsLab <3. We plan to establish this collective as a way for individuals and companies to give back to the OSS maintainers that make data science in F# so awesome. 
Due to FsLab being a diverse collection of packages and people, it is initially not feasible to set goals for part time / full time maintainers for single packages. Therefore, we plan to use the funds of this collective in the following ways:
  • General collective funds (provided via the Backer and Sponsor tiers) will be used to fund development targeting the most community-requested features and issues across all packages.
  • Targeted funds (provided via the Issue sponsorship tier) will be offered for completion of the specific issue/feature of the contributors choice. Please leave a message with the target issue with your donation so we can properly assign the funds (see more on that here)
While this approach is not very scalable, it ensures that some funds can be used for less popular projects, especially during the first baby steps of the collective. We will move to a project-based model with individual funds and tiers per-project once this collective gains traction.
