F# usage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I'm pretty new in F# but I'm familiar to C# so i was wondering for what purposes, i can use F#, well i know its usage is mainly in data analysis and all, but mainly i was thinking to do some regular jobs using F# instead of C# so im asking if there is some areas that F# can overperformance C#, so i mean generally what are the usage of F# but not just in data analysis and big data
    tnx

    As you said F# is a general purpose language, its usage is not limited to big data.

  • I'd recommend you to read these two posts on why functional programming should replace object-oriented programming.

  • hello, 

    I m a beginner in the F# language, and to be honest it is a language that is more expressive than C#, also since it is part of .Net languages than you are able to use just as any other language, also its Multi Paradigm aspect will give a flexibility when switching between using OOP concepts and Functional ones, here is an article about using F# on Azure Functions;

    and here some code examples it with Ado.Net and Azure Table Storage :

    Simple Azure Functions using FSharp

    good coding;
