Rachel Reese: Concurrent Applications with F# Agents
To build today's responsive and scalable applications, developers need to start leveraging asynchronous programming methods. During this talk, we'll explore how developers can easily use the F# agent-based programming model, which is based upon the actor concurrency model first made popular in Erlang, to simply and quickly build concurrent applications.
