Upcoming meetup, and additional information

Hi all,

only one week left until Gustavo's presentation "Functors and Applicative Concepts in F#". A great chance to get acquainted with these topics, even if you do not have much experience with F#. If you come, please announce your attendance on the meetup site.

For members who are new to F#, I have put a brief summary of its features here.

For those of you who have a Haskell background, Tomas Petricek has written a great article here who explains what is different in F# with regards to abstract computations. The article also contains links to two essentail papers by Tomas and Don Syme, which I will list here as well:

(These articles should help overcome the simplified assumption that F# computation expressions are "just monads", i.e., a thing to bind and return, which seems to be at the basis of most examples one can find on the internet.)

Even if you are currently not working much in F#, understanding the ideas behind it will give you important insights and might well make your coding more enjoyable.

All the best, and hopefully see you soon
