F# has some of the coolest real-world features available in any programming language. In this session, I’m going to introduce you to two of them; Type Providers and the MailboxProcessor. Type Providers make handling data from many disparate sources a breeze and the MailboxProcessor will allow you to easily create highly scalable concurrent applications. Come along to this session to see some of the reasons why F# is rapidly gaining traction within the .Net community.
