This session will be organized as a dojo / interactive workshop. Come over, write some code together, and learn yourself some F# for great good! No prior experience required, F# beginners are very welcome - it will be a great opportunity to see F# in action, learn together, and see why F# is awesome.
To get the most from the session, please try and bring a laptop along with F# installed (ideally either MonoDevelop or Visual Studio Web Express/Full Edition). Check out fsharp.org for instructions on how to get F# ready on your machine.
