The Talk

Are you interested in learning more about F#? Want to know why buzzwords like "immutability" and "statelessness" are becoming more and more important for programming?
This session will explain what F# is (and is not!). Why F# is a viable companion to C# and VB, and in what real-world scenarios F# should be considered for being used. In this fast paced tour around the F# language, environment and ecosystem, you'll see how to model domain problems in both C# and F#, and how you can more quickly and effectively perform the same work that you do today in C# or VB.

The Speaker

Isaac has been developing on the .NET framework since v1.0 on a wide variety of server and client-oriented platforms. He nowadays works as CTO for ElastaCloud, a consultancy and tools provider focusing on Azure-based big data solutions. In his spare time he works as a consultant, speaker and trainer, focusing on improving quality of .NET software development through improved day-to-day development practices, unit testing and automation.
