F# is a new .Net functional programming language that will ship with Visual Studio 2010, with a CTP available right now which integrates with Visual Studio 2008. Functional programming techniques like lambda expressions are increasing in popularity and are being seen in languages like C# and C++ with Boost.
This talk is intended to provide a quick introduction to the language for existing developers, along the way comparing features with other programming languages including C#, C++ and Python.
Phil starts by introducing F# as a functional programming language which has object oriented capabilities, he also stated that F# will be part of Visual Studio .NET 2010 as the defacto language.
