This month we’ll investigate F# “under the hood” with the Visual Studio Performance Profiler. The Profiler exposes what your code does at the CLR level, so you can better understand its performance and memory characteristics. We’ll use it to compare and evaluate various F# types and techniques, including how to tell if your functions are really tail recursive.

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#.
