As functional programming is taking pace in current software development. There is always a question what is the difference and why on the earth I should bother about it. Most of the time reason of the question comes because of human nature of resistance towards learning new things. And then there are people who can easily learn new things but even for them unlearning something and re-learning new things is pretty tough.
Xamarin Evolve just concluded. And there no best time to write this post. And for the fact I am not writing anything new or even anything related to announcements that happened there. I am writing this because recently I got chance to work with android using Java. And experience was not at all good. And reason is not so surprisingly Java. I am will not explain anything instead I just copy paste three code snippets.
F# is wonderful language. And luckily or unluckily I do Web Programming (now a days mostly that). So, it is always a preference to use it, wherever possible. But even in 2014 end it is still pain in a**. I did make templates for Servicestack and I will continue to support that. But when it comes to real projects they go far beyond templates. I recently experimenting on something and obviously I am gonna use templates created by me.
NOTE- As per today I am neither married nor committed. And for that case never married and never committed. :P Whoever is following my progress must be knowing my love for F#. Neither me nor F# knows exact time and date when that happen. But now it is like if few days I have to pass without writing few lines to(in) F# then it felt like I have left software engineering for good.
This may be nastiest thing I have done with deployment after a long time. There is no problem with making it work. But deployment on azure is a serious issue. And luckily I completed that. Yes, there is a luck involved. If you read my previous entry for running Nancy and SignalR together. Then most of the things are same only. Use Servicestack template to create project. Remove global.asax & global.
Few days back Scott Hanselman tweeted And I think, I should do that. But twitter is too short and emails boring even I don’t have email ids of few of my favourite Open Source project managers. But I am not shying away from thanking. So, I am writing this entry. Will try to cover as many person as possible who made important part in my life; mainly professionally and sometimes personally too.
What you feel if you meet your favourite actor? Feeling is wonderful right? Now, add the your actress in the mixture. Have you said WOW??? How about director? Still heart is beating?!? How about having dinner with them? Nothing can be better than that. I am having kinda same feeling. It is nothing new that Nancy is dancing quite comfortable with F#. And thanks to Daniel Mohl we are also having templates to get started with Nancy and F#.
