    F# Async to the max ...

    F# is definitely worth learning for many reasons but especially so for cloud computing.

    I am  using F# Agents (mailbox processors) and Async processing in Azure worker roles. The code ends up being much shorter, cleaner and more understandable.

    F# may appear difficult at first but stick with it and I can assure you that your effort will pay off handsomely.
