F# on the Web

Microsoft's F# language offers a new level of productivity to developers on the .NET platform. Unfortunately, most businesses have a hard time understanding where F# fits into their existing platforms. We will work through the transition from an existing ASP.NET application to a F#-based solution that converts all the server and most of the client code.

This workshop targets those developers who are relatively new to functional programming, specifically on the .NET and Mono platforms. However, many of the concepts are generally applicable to functional programming in general.

To get the most from the session please try and bring a laptop along with F# installed (ideally either MonoDevelop or Visual Studio Web Express/Full Edition).

    Thanks to Ryan for a real to the metal view of HTTP with F#. HTTP is functional. Spread the word.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
