F# - that strange beast tucked under 'Other languages' in your Visual Studio setup. You don't know much about it, but you are sure of one thing: "It won't ever get used here!"

This talk gives you the tools to get past the 'not here' barrier:

  • Instant gratification: Practical wins - right here, right now!

  • Guerilla tactics: become a Functional Trotskyist.

  • Epic win: How we coded a game changing calculation engine, in a couple of evenings, while watching the telly.
