Let’s go beyond the “intro to F# syntax” and start building something truly functional! *** Hands on Session *** After the talk, we'll break out laptops plus do some mob coding on the projector. Aaron will give us an exercise to try.. and I have a feeling it's going involve compiling to JS for the browser...
