In this talk, Kit explains why F# has such a transformative effect on people who use it. Kit established that any programming language can be thought of as a belief system, helping us make sense of and manipulate the world. He explores why F# is such an effective belief system. To prove his case, he shows how he's used F# in an ambitious commercial art project, which he previewed at F# eXchange 2018 and which is coming to fruition this year. Then he shows the same principles in use in his day job at Perpetuum, where they use F# to maximise the safety and minimise the costs of the world’s rail systems.
