About F# and fsharpConf

F# is an open-source, cross-platform, functional first programming language. F# makes it easy to solve complex problems with simple code. It integrates smoothly with existing .NET code bases. And... it makes coding fun again!

F# has an active open-source community building on a wide range of tools for web programming, data analytics, testing, cloud computing and much more. At fsharpConf, we want to bring some of the community together in a single-day online event!

The fsharpConf conference is organized by the F# community and is supported by the F# Software Foundation. The event is inspired by dotNetConf and we're excited to be collaborating with creators of dotNetConf on putting together a virtual event with the F# focus! You can watch dotNetConf 2015 recordings on Channel 9.

Making the Case for Using F#

Can't wait for this awesome new content? Check out an introductory video that Seth Juarez did with Tomas Petricek last summer. This is where the idea of fsharpConf was conceived!
