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. The event is the second edition, following a successful fsharpConf in 2016. It was originally inspired by dotNetConf and we are excited to be collaborating with the Channel 9 team to continue this great tradition!

Recordings from fsharpConf 2016

Can't wait for this awesome new content? Check out the great talks that we recorded two years ago at fsharpConf 2016 covering Docker, types and tests, the geometry of Abu Dhabi Louvre and much more!

Thanks to Seth, Golnaz and David for making fsharpConf 2016 happen and to the dotNetConf team for an inspiration. Thank you to everyone in the F# community who said nice things about the first edition of fsharpConf and motivated us to do it again!
