F# for the C# Developer

  • Mar 26, 2014 · 6:00 PM

Back in 2010, Visual Studio came with a new language on board: F#. Out of curiosity, I started playing with it, and got hooked. F# is a fantastic language - it mixes functional and Object Oriented approaches seamlessly, encourages writing bug-free code (it is virtually impossible to get a null exception...), comes with great features, and is incredibly productive. 

In this talk, I will give a intro to F# for C# developers, illustrated with live code samples, and discuss where it fits and how you can get started with it.


 Mathias Brandewinder has been developing software on .NET for about 10 years, and loving every minute of it, except maybe for a few release days. His language of choice was C#, until he discovered F# and fell in love with it. He enjoys arguing about code and how to make it better, and gets very excited when discussing TDD or F#.
His other professional interests include math, forecasting, machine learning and probability. Mathias is a Microsoft F# MVP and the founder of Clear Lines Consulting. He is based in San Francisco, blogs at, and can be found on Twitter as @Brandewinder.

    With a bit of delay, thanks to everybody who came! The code & slides are available on GitHub here: . And the best source of F# resources is the F# foundation at

    Great talk and lots of Kitten prizes! Mathias has a fun and clear view of the advantages of leveraging F#'s unique features. The talk and great demos was a pleasure.

    Very good, persuasive and effective presentation. It makes you wonder why we are not all using F# now.
