John Liao on WPF and F#

A few months ago, I explored how the new .NET functional programming language F# could be used with WPF.  After a while I decided that F# was not “there yet”, in terms of Visual Studio integration, to really be a contender in that space.  One could say that WPF is not “there yet” either, but that’s besides the point…

It turns out that John Liao has down a fantastic job of exploring and blogging this exciting intersection of cutting edge technologies.  The mastermind behind F#, Don Syme, has created a listing of Liao’s WPF/F# blog posts here.  This is great material!  Enjoy.

    I agree this additional F# material is excellent. I have a F# book at home that goes into WPF/f#.

    I didnt like functional programming that much, its way hard. Ill fight to stay with C#, f# is plain hard

    sacha,

    I agree. F# is much more difficult to learn and use than C#. For certain types of programming tasks, though, it supposedly makes life much easier. If you need to distribute some processing over multiple cores or CPUs, functional programming advocates say that using a functional language makes it simple(r). Also, text parsing is supposed to be easier too. I don’t have enough experience with it yet to agree or disagree.
