Microsoft Research just released a new iteration of Try F#, a set of tools designed to make it easy for anyone – not just developers – to learn F# and take advantage of its big data, cross-platform capabilities.
F# is the open-source, cross-platform programming language invented by Don Syme and his team at Microsoft Research to help reduce the time-to-deployment for analytical software components in the modern enterprise.
Big data definitively is big these days and we are excited about this new iteration of Try F#. Regardless of your favorite language, or if you’re on a Mac, a Windows PC, Linux or Android, if you need to deal with complex problems, you will want to take a look at F#!
Kerry Godes from Microsoft’s Openness Initiative connected with Evelyne Viegas, Director of Semantic Computing at Microsoft Research, to find out more about how you can use “Try F# to seamlessly discover, access, analyze and visualize big and broad data.” For the complete interview, go to the Openness blog or check out www.tryfsharp.org to get started “writing simple code for complex problems”.
