The book of F#, authored by Dave Fancher examines the concepts associated with F# with the help of comprehensive explanation and relevant source codes. Towards the end of the book, Fancher provides coverage of advanced topics such as asynchronous and parallel programming.
Functional programming languages can lead to novel ways of thinking about application development. There is just something about using a different paradigm that puts engineering problems into a new context. In such a spirit, Adam Granicz shows how F# and WebSharper can be used to tame mobile development.
Robert Pickering continues the conversation in this third article on F# and this time focuses on Asynchronous Workflows and the resulting peformance gains obtained when used. While this article focuses on F#, the learnings are applicable across .NET languages.
Next in a series of articles on F#, Robert Pickering progresses the discussion to a deep dive on workflows which are the building blocks for creating DSLs. 1
Since Robert Pickering published Foundations of F# in May, the language has grown significantly. We asked him discuss what's new in F#.
