In this joint meeting with the San Francisco MongoDB meetup, Max Hirschhorn will give an overview of the (prototype) F# driver for MongoDB. One aspect of F# is that it allows for language-oriented programming, which is the concept of defining new language constructs that are well-suited for solving or expressing a particular problem. This enables us to provide a more natural developer experience over what the existing .NET driver can support. We will demonstrate the various approaches we took to make querying MongoDB from F# more idiomatic to the language.
About Max: Max is a rising senior at Caltech, studying computer science with a focus on networks and databases. He has been working on the MongoDB driver for F# as a summer intern. You can follow him on Twitter as @visemet
