An Introduction to F# for the C# Developer

Back in 2010, Visual Studio shipped with a new language on board: F#. Out of curiosity, I started playing with it, and got hooked. F# is a fantastic language - it mixes functional and Object Oriented approaches seamlessly, encourages writing bug-free code (it is virtually impossible to get a null exception...), comes with great features, and is incredibly productive. For the C# developer accustomed to Object Oriented thinking, it can also be a bit daunting at first.

Mathias Brandewinder has been writing software in C# for nearly 10 years, and loving every minute of it, except maybe for a few release days. He is an F# MVP, enjoys arguing about code and how to make it better, and gets very excited when discussing TDD or F#. His other professional interests are applied math and probability. If you want to know more about him, you can check out his blog at www.clear-lines.com/blog or find him on Twitter as @brandewinder.
