Meet up

Literate_programmin­g.With("F#"­)

Wednesday, 18th March in London

This meetup was organised by F#unctional Londoners Meetup Group in March 2015

Overview

Literate_programmin­g.With("F#"­)

The idea of literate programming is to combine program code with explanation in a natural language, so that the entire source code can be read as an explanation of how the program is constructed and what it does. Literate programming is useful in a wide range of areas:

  • you can write literate scripts to document how a library works

  • you can use it to explain the logic behind complex calculations or mathematical models

  • you can use it to write data analysis that is executable and produces the final report

  • and as a bonus, you can use it to generate slides for your programming talks!
