The New York City F# Meetup Group will be meeting this week, on the evening of June 16, right in the heart of Manhattan. Do what I did last month, and take a stroll in Central Park before popping down to this event!

Chris Marinos - Getting Your Func(tional) on with F#

Thursday, June 16, 2011, 6:30 PM, Microsoft Offices, 6th floor , 1290 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY

F# has a strong, growing reputation for its ability to simplify complicated problems like parallel and asynchronous programming, data processing, and financial modeling. However, F# isn't just great in these niches; it’s also great at solving everyday problems. In this presentation, you'll view F#'s practical problem solving abilities through the lens of a WPF MVVM application. If you're a newcomer to F# and functional programming, you'll learn some new functional techniques to add to your programming toolbox. If your an experienced F# user, you'll see some examples of working with F# in a GUI setting. Regardless of your skill level, you'll see a fun demonstration of a F# that differs from the academic material often found in introductory F# and functional programming talks.
