The F# Koans: An Interactive Way to Learn F# Through Testing

18th September 2013 in New York City at DUMBO Loft

There are 16 other SkillsCasts available from Progressive F# Tutorials NYC 2013

Skillscast coming soon.

The F# koans will lead you on the path to F# enlightenment. Come with your laptop, an open mind, and willingness to learn. Leave with a better understanding of F#, functional programming, and test driven development.

If you're new to F#, you'll learn the basics of the language and get your fingers working writing F# code right away. If you're an experienced F# developer, you'll sharpen your skills by solving problems and helping others in their journey towards F# mastery. Based on Edge Case's fantastic Ruby Koans, the F# koans are a set of exercises (in the form of tests) designed to teach you the F# language. By the end of this session, you'll have a better understanding of both the syntax and the culture of F# programming.
