Abstract:
 
 F#  A preview of what you will see at CodeMash
 
You've learned the basics of functional programming, but you're not sure if it's useful on an everyday basis. The truth is that functional programming has a rich history of solving the same real world problems that imperative and object orient programming have solved. In this talk, you'll learn to use F# to go beyond the basics of functional programming and apply it to practical problems. You'll see the anatomy of an F# application and learn some functional techniques to add to your programming toolbox. A basic knowledge of immutability, side effects, and higher
order functions is assumed for this talk, but you'll learn how to apply some intermediate level functional programming techniques.
