Functional languages and non-relational databases are quite the rage these days. Mike read a bit about the two technologies, and wondered if they could make his life at work simpler. Choosing F# and MongoDB, he set out on an investigation. Mike will share with you the results of this "super spike", giving you a better sense for the applicability of these two technologies.
About F# SIG
The Cleveland F# Programmers Special Interest Group (F# SIG) is for programmers who work in and/or are interested in learning the F# language. F# is Microsoft's entry in the fast-growing world of functional programming. Compared to other programming languages F# code is often simpler and more intuitive, yet like any language it takes some time and practice to learn F#. The F# SIG gives programmers at all skill levels a monthly opportunity to learn about the language and how others are using it, improve their skills and share their knowledge in a relaxed, cooperative environment . The group meetings consist of mini-presentations by members, group programming exercises, and informal discussions. The audience ranges from F# experts to those developers that are getting their first glimpse of F#.
