Real World Problem Solving with F# - Kevin Jones

Do you ever get the feeling that sometimes, new technologies are just toys that you will never be able to find a practical use for? Does Microsoft's functional language, F#, feel that way to you? Wondering what F# is? F# is a language with a functional twist. Though vastly different from C# or VB.NET, they work together well and have influenced each other over the years. It's built on .NET with a unique skill set to solve interesting problems. We'll be skipping right over "Hello World" and looking at what F# can really do, some real-world problems F# has been used to solve, and how you can use it to solve your problems.

Kevin Jones is a Team Lead and Senior Consultant for LogicBoost, a leading software development company based in Washington DC.
