Community for F# / Experience report on FPish - Everything Functional

Please RSVP for instructions on how to join the event.


In this talk, I will give an experience report on implementing FPish, a new community site for functional programmers; the issues we encountered; and the way we solved some of these challenges. FPish is implemented entirely in F# as a massive WebSharper sitelet, with heavy use of functional abstractions such as formlets and HTML combinators, and as such it is the largest web application of its kind. I will also give a brief survey of various FPish features and show how you can use FPish on a daily basis to benefit your FP language community.

A while ago we rolled out a new UI for Try WebSharper, essentially changing it into a snappy single-page application (SPA). Among others, you can now switch between trying out various snippets and making your own without any noticable delay, no more annoy[...]
