Thinking Functionally in C#.

The determined programmer can write FORTRAN programs in any language - Ed Post

To program effectively in a functional language, you need to discard many of the thought processes and habits that you have developed for coding in ‘curly bracket’ languages, and understand a new set of idioms and ways to think about code.

In this session I will talk about some of those fundamental idioms, explain why they exist and how they interact to provide a very different framework for thinking about your code. Even if you never write any F#, these ways of thinking can be used to make your C# code more efficient and more robust.

I will also discuss some C# libraries that you can use to apply functional principles to your existing C# code.
