Microsoft Unveils a New F# Learning Site

Microsoft has released a new version of its Web site to get developers up to speed on its F# programming language.

To put it in highly technical terms, F# is used for big stuff: huge number crunching, statistics, cloud computing-type scenarios, etc. Here's how Microsoft described the new site in a press release:

"Try F# provides the tutorials, resources and tools needed to begin working with F# right away. This version allows easy learning of the fundamentals of F# through new domain-specific tutorials, and now includes F# 3.0 type providers for information-rich programming and the important abilities to write and share your own F# code in the browser."

F# can be daunting, but it could save you a lot of time for the right project. It's worth checking out, as are these F# articles from our site.
