F# Type Providers
Introduced in F Sharp 3.0, Type Providers are components that provide types, properties, and methods to an application to facilitate information rich programming. In other words a type provider automatically exposes the types which represent provider’s data structures.
Concepts of functional programming is made much harder when the developer is also trying to learn a new language, like Haskell, Scala or Clojure at the same time. With that in mind, we focus on relating functional concepts in a common language: Java.
Introduction to F#
With a pre-recorded presentation, we explore the unique features that F# offers to functional developers: functions, composition, piping, discriminated unions, active patterns and computation expressions.
With such a conspicuous title you'd think this was meant to be ironic or a post-modern arthouse diatribe. Nope, I'm just asking you to literally think differently, because the future depends on it. Non-ironic drama intended.
Practical Functional Programming: The Virtues of Laziness
When you're new to Functional Programming, or struggling to learn it after coming from an Object Oriented background, you're likely to ask: "This is so different, what's the practical aspect?"
Bare Metal Functional Programming With Symbolics
The Symbolic's Lisp Machine is an amazing and unique computer designed with one thing in mind: run functional programs as fast as possible using hardware specifically designed for the language!
