An Introduction to F#

F# is a succinct and expressive typed functional programming language for the .NET platform, and Microsoft will be supporting F# as a first class language in Visual Studio 2010. We'll take a look at what you need to know to start having fun with F#, and how to use it productively. We'll also look at some sample applications of F# and functional programming and cover aspects of parallel, reactive and asynchronous programming with F#.
