Functional Scripting (or getting F# in through the backdoor)

Outside of work, consulting, training and coaching, Phil Nash has authored open source projects such as Catch (a C++ & Objective-C test framework) and iPhone apps such as the strategy game, vConqr. He's been an increasingly semi-regular speaker at conferences and events.

In this session Phil will share with us how (and why) he has come to use F# as his preferred scripting language in place of more traditional options like Python. He'll cover some practical examples and a few tips and techniques he's picked up along the way.

Using F# in this way is not only a valuable end in itself but a nice way to start introducing F# into an environment that may not be ready for it in the main codebase.

While this session will not be teaching fundamental language features it doesn't get very advanced and should be entirely suitable to those new to F# - as well as the old hands.

      You don't *need* to - this will be a presentation with slides and code demos.

      However you might want to follow along with some parts, so you if you have one with you you keep your options open ;-)
