They definitely lumped the F# and VB.NET jobs together. As a C# dev who actually likes the microsoft platform, it kills me a little to see VB.NET mentioned in this thread before F#.
Everybody has a hardon for python being easy to write. and let's be honest also easy to copy/paste in code from the web in python, but people should really really try F#.
F# is all of the ease of writing python with the power of a functional programming language, the stability of a compiled language, the ease of interactive development and running in one of the best IDEs on the market.
You don't even have to know functional programming to start writing F# because it fully supports OOP. F# is criminally underappreciated.
