release of VS 2010 Beta 1 today
, F# is officially
a part of the in-box VS family in the sense that it ships with VS 2010 as a first class language for use in building your .NET projects that require the power and flexibility of the functional approach
to program composition. For VS 2008, a great
IDE and toolset that you have at your disposal today, you can install the
equivalent version of F# that ships with VS2010 Beta 1
as an add-in install. Right on!
Here, F# Program Manager Luke Hoban talks with me about F#, generally and what people have been doing with it, the current state of the technology, what F# enables, etc. You'll even see some code Luke's written, but this is mainly an Old School Channel 9 conversation.
You know the drill.
