Concurrency is increasingly important for many applications. The shift to manycore brings abundant parallelism to the desktop. The Web, Microsoft Silverlight, and distributed systems increase the demand for asynchronous solutions. F#, a functional and object-oriented language for Microsoft .NET, adds many tools to make parallel and asynchronous programming both fun and easy. This talk quickly reviews the core concepts of the F# language, and shows how ideas like immutability, functional design, async workflows, agents and more can be used to meet the challenges of today's real-world applications.
