Back in November I blogged about a new home for the F# community project templates. Since that time there has been a flurry of activity in this new home. Two of the most recent additions include a template for creating Simple.Web apps and one for creating a self-hosted ServiceStack service. Both of these templates were built with the help of SideWaffle.
Simple.Web is a REST-focused, object-oriented Web Framework for .NET built by Mark Rendle. James D'Angelo recently published a pure F# template that helps you get started with Simple.Web. You can find it at http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/bbec75fa-0f31-47e9-a8ce-c301edb2fa4b.
ServiceStack is a framework for building simple and fast web services on .NET and Mono. Kunjan Dalal and I recently released a template for kick-starting a self-hosted ServiceStack service. Other ServiceStack template options will be included in this package soon, so stay tuned.

If you want to learn more about web development with F#, head over to FSharp.org. If you'd like to get involved, clone https://github.com/fsharp/FSharpCommunityTemplates and start hacking. If you're new to SideWaffle, I also recommend watching the introduction video at http://sidewaffle.com/. It's now easier than ever before to create a template with SideWaffle.
