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.

In this talk, I will give a intro to F# for C# developers, illustrating with live code samples why I think it's awesome, and discuss where it fits and how you can best get started with it.
