Finally! A book that shows a wide variety of applications for F#.

Jonathan DeCarlo, Bentley Systems, Inc.

F# Deep Dives presents a collection of real-world F# techniques, each written by expert practitioners. Each chapter presents a new use case where you'll read how the author used F# to solve a complex problem more effectively than would have been possible using a traditional approach. You'll not only see how a specific solution works in a specific domain, you'll also learn how F# developers approach problems, what concepts they use to solve them, and how they integrate F# into existing systems and environments.

About the Technology

F# is an elegant, cross-platform, functional-first programming language. With F#, developers create consistent and predictable programs that are easier to test and reuse, simpler to parallelize, and less prone to bugs. The language, its tooling, and the functional programming style have proven effective in many application areas like secure financial engines, machine learning algorithms, scientific calculations, collaborative web applications, games, and more.
