Introduction to F# Workshop

Ryan Riley will lead a workshop introducing F#, an ML functional language built on top of the .NET platform.  Bring your laptop because we will be doing exercises during the meet up. (Get more information about setting up a development environment from the comments area. We will also have some thumb drives at the meet up with the IDE/necessary frameworks.)

This Dojo introduces F# type providers using those from the F# Data library.

The goal of the Dojo is to find 7 secret words to find a secret phrase! To find each word, you need to solve a simple data access task using type providers - such as read XML document, perform JSON-based REST request or read data from the WorldBank; then perform simple processing to find the right word in the result and find the secret phrase! The Dojo comes with a script file containing 7 tasks - to make this a bit harder, the words are not in the original order, so you need to get most of them to find the secret phrase.

    The Community for F# ( has been collecting dojos and workshops for use a user group meetings. I've heard good things about this one and thought it would be a fun way to introduce the group to F# (and ML langs in general).

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
