TF#I Friday #2 : Getting started

with one comment

My initial introduction to F# was effective.  Unfortunately, the effect it had was to convince me that I should never learn F#.  And so I stayed away from the language for a couple of years until its inclusion in Visual Studio 2010 reawakened my interest.   I’m glad I’ve gone back to learning about F#, but it does make you realise that the first few minutes with a new language or technology are crucial.

So, this time around, I decided to go back to my tried and trusted method which consists simply of reading and experimenting.  In support of which I bought a couple of books: Programming F# and Functional Programming.  Other books are available.  As for online resources, I tend to read articles that are suggested via the maelstrom of near real time social online noise-makers or search for relevant stuff.  However, there’s a few links worth noting as good starting places:

F# Developer Centre

Don Syme’s blog

Tomas Petricek’s blog

hubFS forums

Of course, you’ll find your own places and resources as I’m sure I will as the journey continues.
