Chris Marinos - Getting Your Func(tional) on with F#

F# has a strong, growing reputation for its ability to simplify complicated problems like parallel and asynchronous programming, data processing, and financial modeling. However, F# isn't just great in these niches; it’s also great at solving everyday problems. In this presentation, you'll view F#'s practical problem solving abilities through the lens of a WPF MVVM application. If you're a newcomer to F# and functional programming, you'll learn some new functional techniques to add to your programming toolbox. If your an experienced F# user, you'll see some examples of working with F# in a GUI setting. Regardless of your skill level, you'll see a fun demonstration of a F# that differs from the academic material often found in introductory F# and functional programming talks.

Bio for Chris Marinos: 
Software consultant at SRT Solutions, C# MVP, F#/functional programming enthusiast, (ab)user of LINQ, blogger, spearker, code/language monkey, video game connoisseur, tv buff

Note From Rick:

    sorry I bailed on the group, I was starving and the MVC room had pizza thought I'd make it back - so, how was it? Something that might've changed my life?

    Excellent presentation. I don't use WPF or SliverLight, yet, so that part was also interesting. Nice to see F# treated as "just another everyday programming language".
