This talk will introduce what might seem like an unlikely combination - functional programming with F# and the Raspberry Pi. You will see how powerful functional abstractions and succinct code can make prototyping and programming with the Pi a breeze.
The result is a (primarily) Last.Fm powered radio station, with an LCD screen, controller support, a website, and a bunch of other stuff all brought together with ease using one amazing programming language!
