Creative hardworker.

comment What are the biggest differences between F# and Scala?
Ok, I stand corrected (F#'s Wikipedia entry is not up to date). So F# is a commercial product while Scala is free software.

comment Should Professional Development occur on company time?
Yep, asking doesn't hurt. But even if your boss doesn't get it, it's still your responsibility to keep your skills up to date.

comment How to enter flow experience for SW development?
Unfortunately I think that topics that are not "interesting per se" are, by definition, not "genuinely interesting" either. I don't know if there's some magic trick to get a flow experience on those. At least it's not easy. But luckily I find most programming-related things interesting per se.
