Functional Programming eXchange 2012 / FPish: leveraging F# and WebSharper in a large-scale web application

Please RSVP for instructions on how to join the event.

Description

When building a large web application, functional languages are not the first technology that comes to mind. However, thanks to WebSharper, F# is a more than suitable tool for this task. WebSharper is a framework dedicated to building web applications in F#, including compositional markup, translation to JavaScript and other abstractions such as Sitelets and Formlets. In this talk for the 2012 Functional Programming eXchange, Loic Denuziere will talk about FPish.net, a community website for functional programmers, featuring among others questions and answers, event scheduling, user groups and blog aggregation. FPish is being developed using WebSharper and was released less than six months after the first line of code.
