  • About Microsoft

    Microsoft has had an impact on, and indeed defined the computing world like no other company. The development tools, operating systems and applications produced by Microsoft have achieved near-ubiquity in the desktop computer market. The original mission set by Microsoft's founder was to have "a computer on every desk and in every home, running Microsoft software". About 90% of computer users worldwide run Microsoft products, hence this objective has largely been met. For operating systems, Web client statistics suggest that Microsoft Windows has about a 92% share, Apple Mac OS 6% and Linux, 1%.

Course duration

  • 2 Days

Course Outline

F# is a functional programming language and hence adopts a style which bows to both procedural and object-oriented methods. It derives from the need to express things almost mathematically, but using algorithms and formulas implemented in programming language syntax.

This training course is designed for experienced programmers that need to start developing F# applications.

  • Learn to write, maintain and debug F# console applications
  • Learn to make effective use of some of the core F# functionality
  • Learn to write functional-based and object-oriented code.
  • Experienced in a block-structured language such as Pascal, modern variants of Basic, Smalltalk, Ada, C or C++, Java
  • Familiar with concepts such as functions or procedures, control flow, arrays, and structures or records
  • Knowledge of C++, Java or the other .NET languages is neither assumed nor required
  1. F# Program Quick start
    1. Describe the basic components of a F# application
    2. Describe the process used by both the F# interpretor and the F# compiler
    3. Write a simple F# program
  2. Simple Datatypes and Operators
    1. Use and define primitive datatypes
    2. Use and define identifiers
    3. Use operators and operator precedence
    4. Use conversions and scope
    5. List some of the non-primitive types

    3. Make an educational choice between aggregate types
  5. Functions
    1. Implement and invoke functions
    2. Describe function type-constraints and data passing mechanisms
    3. Describe specialised usage of functions
  6. Object Models
    1. Model real-world problems
    2. Define classification and functionality
  7. Classes
    1. Use object-orientation and encapsulation
