VS 2008 and F# in its CTP version have been released in September 2008
This presentation was about the fundamentals of the F#, which is a functional language. The vision of Microsoft regarding this language is not to replace one of the mainstream .NET language such as C# or VB.NET, but, rather, to have it as a support language or as a productivity tool.
Luke Hoban, through a complete demo, demonstrated the basics of the language, such as "let", rec to declare recursive functions, the pipelines "|>" or even the parallel execution of functions. He also demonstrated how to expose a F# code as a .NET class able to be called from a C# or VB.NET code.
The example that was taken, is the processing of financial data download from the Yahoo! website and its display in a tabular of graph way, using the graphic tools from FlyingFrog.
