Learn by need

Sometimes when you want learn a new language, you may find difficult find opportunity to use.

Using it in a new project at work, could be an unacceptable risk during the learning phase.
But in an open source project you've no time constraints and no boss screaming against you!

These days I'm heavily refactoring Command Line Parser Library, as you know written in C#.
I decided to change methods naming convention from camel-case to a normal phrase separated by underscore.

Here is the chance! Finally a simple task to be coded in F#, a language I'm starting to love.
Maybe that the following is not the best F# snippet ever (and probably is not).

Anyway this post is not about the code, but about a learning technique that always worked for me.
