F# Reading – Discriminated Unions and Pattern Matching

Johann recent posting, Asteroid Sharp Shooter: Post-mortem, offers interesting reading in the F# XBox space. Johnann comments resonate with other F# postings around certain F# features aiding development:

Features such as discriminated unions and pattern matching are lacking in C#

I echo similar views from the development Lab49 has done with F# around Single Dealer Platforms/Real-Time Market Risk.

Finally, The Path of Go. Microsoft Research has this to say about F# usage:

We used F# to program the AI. Because it abstracts functionality from coding, F# lets you focus more on the problem domain and less on programming itself.
