Have people started to use this yet? I was just introduced to it and think it has a lot of potential to save time in certain situations.
Has anyone started to use this yet?
The best times I can see for using it are for things that involve doing some number crunching and string manipulation.
For those of you that have not looked at F# yet, you can learn about it here.
Also, there is a download available for Visual Studio 2008 that lets you start using it.
This is also some great information in hubFS. That is a great place to see example code and ask people how to do some things in F#. I would also suggest checking out this post, The F# Operators and Basic Functions.
Keep in mind that F# is a functional programming language. So this allows you to have all the power of a functional language, and still be in .NET and use tools you are familiar with.
One example of using F# is Luca Bolognese’s Financial Functions.
Let me know what you think of F# and if you plan to use it, what you will use it for.
