Scott Lock Thoughts on .Net, Caparea.net and Windows Phone

I had a chance to learn a bit about F# last night at the Caparea.net Users Group meeting.  Not really knowing anything about functional programming or F# going into it, I wasn't sure what to expect.  Matthew Podwysocki delivered a clear and sometimes deep dive into what functional programming all about, what F# is about, and where functional programming is going.  He recommended two books:

1. Programming in Haskell 

2. Expert F#

One of the coolest things that he showed last night was how easy it was to program Asynchronous and Parallel functions.  The MSDN examples show 3 pages of code and classes.  He was able to do it in about a dozen lines of F# code.  Very cool.
