We all know and love C# with .NET, but often the natural development process encouraged by the pair causes us to develop bugs without realizing the potential for bugs. F# with .NET encourages a different approach. Helping to eliminate classes of bugs by naturally approaching development differently. In this session we'll discuss what kinds of bugs are naturally overcome by using F# and get an introduction into the language itself and tooling around it. Finally, I'll walk you through using F# as a cross-platform language using the tools provided by Xamarin. Even if your company never allows you to use F# just learning the language and why it's natural approach is so helpful will help you become a better developer in C#. You'll leave this session armed with knowledge and tools to be a smarter, wiser, more observant developer!
