I have a few ideas for tryF# if you know of a better place to send it too, please tell me
tracking Progress :
A person signed on might want to see the lessons it has completed (and mark stuff he know by hand of course) metric associated : some measure of fragmentation.
Badges : have a badge to display on website, that depends on themes / %age completed ?
that should be fairly easy to do if one stick with a few. (ideally that would come with an API to mix with other badges provided by other vendor (github etc) that a person might need to master to become a F# contributor)
One could imagine a "F# id skill map" automatically generated : I completed this, pushed code on that, etc...... For getting engagement from people on the fringe that might be useful.
Have some learning calendar : now when people start using tryfsharp, they don't know how long it is going to take. it would be good to generate a prospective 'learning calendar' that sends reminders, reading material in advance. if people mark a theme as already known, it would ideally adapt to it.

Thanks for these great suggestions, they really make a lot of sense to help learners. We hope that you are finding the tutorials useful and enjoyable!
I am one of the Try F# team, so you have sent it exactly the right place.
We hope that other people can also add more suggestions, we want to gather as much feedback as possible as to how people are using the site now, and how we might improve it in the future.
