Development Architecture blog is designed for developers who have some troubles in their code.
This blog will be mainly on web development, though many of it's posts can be used also on software design.
I wish you nothing but the best,
First Steps In F Sharp
F# - also known as F Sharp.
As you know, there are some OOP languages out there. You probably know VB.Net, C# and Java but I'm about to talk about relatively new one.
I would like to talk a little about F Sharp.
Similar to C Sharp and VB.Net, F# is also targeting the .Net Framework and is also Object Oriented.
The main difference in F# is not it's unique syntax but rather the new point of view and better state of mind it brings to the Object Oriented Programming.
F Sharp uses "type inference" - meaning, the programmer doesn't need to keep his mind in the needed data type parameter and can just use the word "let" (similar to "var").
The data type will be deduce by the compiler itself during compilation (F# also allows explicit data types declaration).
After this short introduction to F# (very short) I would like to start the practical section. and this post will be all about Lists in F Sharp.
Let’s make a small experiment:
Create a List of Ints in C#
List<int> newList = new List<int>();
Add the following values to this list:
Now please try to sort it using "Absolute Value".
You'll probably find out that if you -did- manage to do this - you've used functionality programming.
In F# it's almost the same and as easy as can be once you get the point:
