Re: [PhillyOnRails] Meeting next Wednesday, May 21st

Sonofagun!  I would totally go to this if Philly ALT.NET wasn't doing their own meeting at Drexel the same night :-/  Been wanting to learn more about both those topics.  Was gonna send to this list, but I'm thinking you guys will be busy!

Our next meeting is coming up, and should be a good one.  We welcome members of the Philly Lambda group to join the conversation about Functional Programming on the .NET framework with the new F# language.

Please RSVP to if you plan on attending.  Your RSVP enters you in the running to win prizes like a books, a Resharper license, and thanks to Dani Diaz at Microsoft, we have a copy each of Office 2007 and Vista to give away.

F# - What is all the Hype Around Functional Programming Languages?
A gentle introduction to functional programming in F#, a new first-class language in the .NET space.  We'll discuss high-order functions, partial functions, pattern matching and more.  Learn how you can use F# to express both functional and imperative programming paradigms with ease.
