This month we will have a gentle introduction to F# for object oriented programmers. Starting with a basic overview of functional programming, continuing to highlight some of the differences between object oriented, and finally functional approaches to solving problems. We will look at cases where functional programming techniques are potentially simpler than or more productive than object oriented approaches.
Specifically we will be looking at:
– F# scripting, and REPL based development
– Basic functional data structures and patterns
– Some examples of asynchronous programming in F#
We will have pizza and refreshments at the meeting. If you plan to attend please leave a comment or drop a note on the contact form.
