Details

With each new release of Xamarin Studio, the mobile story gets even better for functional programming. It’s possible to write fully native, cross-platform mobile apps — iOS, Android, Mac, Windows Phone 7, and Windows 8 — all entirely in F#! I’ll concentrate on iOS, covering both iOS basics and F# basics while walking you through building a complete app. You’ll have all the tools to run with your own idea when we're done!
