Learn About F# and Web Development

Hi, my name’s Aaron Powell and I’m a Cloud Developer Advocate (CDA) at Microsoft. My area of specialty is front-end web dev and .NET (especially F#), but I enjoy doing silly things with technology.

Every week my colleague Cecil Philips hosts On .NET Live, an hour of live streaming about all things .NET.

He invited me on this week to talk about F# and web development, specifically how we can do serverless web development with F# and Azure Functions. This was a chance for me to show off some of the awesome community projects such as Fable and Feliz, which make it easy to build client-side JavaScript applications, but done using F#.

We talked about how to created Azure Functions with F#, I showed how you can get started using some GitHub repo templates to simplify a dev environment using Fable + Functions, and we finished by looking at an app I build using this stack and have deployed to Static Web Apps.

Check out the session on the dotnet YouTube channel.
