By the end of this talk, you’ll be ready to jump into F# development. I’ll cover the fundamental concepts of F# and functional programming in general; then, show off the language features, syntax, and constructs, and generally display the fabulousness of F#. Finally, you’ll leave with a few projects to try out on your own.
