An interesting paradigm
So today I got to play around with F# for the very first time. I must admit, it was very different to what I am used to, but I am keen to learn more.
Because I was using VS2008, before I could do anything in F# I needed to download and install the SDK.
Once installed it was pretty easy getting started. I tried the following Hello World example.
My thoughts on F# right now are not well formed. I can see the benefit of having a functional language in the .NET framework, but I still don’t know enough about functional languages to know in what scenarios it would be viable to use vs. C#.
Well… in the next few months I am going to try get into it a lot more… so we shall see!
Here is the code snippet…
open System printfn "hello world"; let name = Console.ReadLine()
