Last week Don Syme joined me for an F# university tour here in Denmark.
The final stop on the tour was at Microsoft Development Center Copenhagen ( for an open TechTalk on F# and functional programming on the .NET platform.

To make this talk as broadly available as possible, we just decided to recorded it Smiley

In the TechTalk Don touches on topics like asynchronous programming, graphics, why functional programming matters, just to mention a few topics … and everything explained with lots of samples and code!

      Thanks for posting Don's presentation. I would retitle this video to be F# : "Less typing, more thinking"

      The content on channel9 has been incredibly useful to me, especially recently in F#. Keep this great stuff coming! F# is wonderful, the hurdle to overcome is getting imperative minded people to see its easier. F# with .NET makes functional programming useful/practical beyond niche applications.
