F# for Parallel and Asynchronous Programming

Sign in to queue

Description

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.
