What would you want covered in an presentation about F#?


I have been asked to discuss FSharp at a local programmer meetup. What are some questions or information that sets F# apart from other languages? What are things that you would want to be covered in a presentation?


Here’s what has gotten me excited about starting a new job with F# next week :slight_smile:

Some ideas:

  • FP basics, immutable data transformations over encapsulated state.
  • Nice test function names with double backticks
  • Type-safe regex matching with parameterized active patterns
  • Computation Expressions for seq, async
  • Type provider for CSV, SQL, etc…
  • SAFE stack with end-to-end F#
  • Mobile with Elmish.XamarinForms
