Real World Functional Programming : with examples in F# and C#
HIGHLIGHTA crisp introduction to functional programming for .NET developersÂ withexamples in C# and F#.DESCRIPTIONFunctional programming languages like F#, Erlang, and Scala are attractingattention as an efficient way to handle the new requirements for programmingmulti-processor and high-availability applications. MicrosoftÂ s new F# is a truefunctional language and C# uses functional language features for LINQ andother recent advances.Real World Functional Programming is a unique tutorial that explores thefunctional programming model through the F# and C# languages. The clearlypresented ideas and examples teach readers how functional programming differsfrom other approaches. It explains how ideas look in F#Â a functionallanguageÂ as well as how they can be successfully used to solve programmingproblems in C#. Readers build on what they know about .NET and learn wherea functional approach makes the most sense and how to apply it effectively inthose cases.The reader should have a good working knowledge of C#. No prior exposure toF# or functional programming is required.KEY POINTSÂ Crystal-clear presentation of core functional programming concepts andhow to apply them with examples in both F# and C#Â How to write efficient functional code for .NET in F#Â Identifies tasks that benefit from a functional programming approachMARKET INFORMATIONDevelopers worldwide are adopting functional programming as the answer todeveloping for systems that require lots of mission-critical programs to run at thesame time. From telecom switches to high-availability enterprise applications, toapplications designed to run on multi-core processors, functional programminghas many immediate uses. MicrosoftÂ s F# language has created demand for good,non-academic books on this important topic.

About Tomas Petricek
Tomas Petricek discovered functional programming as a graduate student atCharles University in Prague. He has been a Microsoft C# MVP since 2004 andis one of the most active members in the F# community. In addition to his workwith F#, he has been using C# 3.0 in a functional way since the early previews in2005. He interned with the F# team at Microsoft Research, and he has developeda client/server web framework for F# called F# WebTools. His articles on functionalprogramming in .NET and various other topics can be found at his web sitetomasp.net.
