We live in an increasingly the complex and information-rich world that provides huge opportunities for programmers to thrive, explore and create exciting applications. Functional first programming approaches offer the ability to develop simple, correct, robust code for complex problems that are ideal for this. In this talk we will explore how the design and features of the F# language unleashes developers to maximise their creativity and productivity, and embeds them in the seamless access to the world of typed data and services on the web, cloud and in the enterprise.
