F# is a functional programming language that runs on various flavors of .NET. Its succinct syntax allows developers to create efficient and maintainable applications in just a few lines of code.
What you might not know is that F# has vibrant community outside of the umbrella of Microsoft and a very active open source community. Whenever you get a chance, check out the F# Software Foundation for use cases, samples and various projects happening within the F# community.
Learning F# and functional programming in general has been on my list of things to do for this year, so its always a pleasure for me to learn more about what's happening in the ecosystem.
In this episode of On .NET, Phillip Carter and I sit down to talk about the Ionide extension for Visual Studio Code. Ionide has tons of great features for F# developers working in Visual Studio code such as autocomplete, packet integration, syntax highlighting and much more.
