F# 3.0: Data, Services, Web, Cloud...at Your Fingertips
Modern programming thrives on rich spaces of data, information, and services. F# 3.0, to ship in Visual Studio 2012, brings integrated support for Information Rich Programming to the .NET platform. F# Type Providers and F# Queries greatly simplify data-rich analytical programming, allowing programmers to easily access and manipulate a variety of data sources. In this session, we introduce these exciting new features and how they can be used to leverage technologies such as OData, ADO.NET Entity Framework, Microsoft SQL Server, WSDL services, Microsoft SharePoint, and Windows Azure Marketplace. This talk will cover basic F# syntax--no prior knowledge of the language is necessary.
