F# for Startups

If .NET is an unusual choice for a startup, F# is an extremely unusual choice.  Yet at VoloMetrix we've had great success using F# to write solid production code at "startup speed".  I'll briefly discuss the basics and history of F#, show you some examples of where it shines compared to C#, and talk about how it's made us more productive.

Joel Grus, Chief Scientist, VoloMetrix

Joel Grus is Chief Scientist at VoloMetrix, where he develops and builds the algorithms for the core analytics platform (mostly in F#).  Previously he worked in data science roles at Decide, Bing, and Farecast.  He has degrees in math and economics, but he sort of wishes he'd studied computer science instead.

    Very interesting presentation on F#. This was completely new to me. Enjoyed knowing about it and meeting the tech community at Seattle.

    Really looking forward to this session!

    Am becoming quite intrigued by F# and would love to hear from someone who's used it in anger.
