VTFun talk on F# Agents

April 27, 2013

Last Thursday, I gave a talk to the most fabulous user group I know ;-) — @VTFun, the Vermont Functional Programming group. We’d previously had a couple talks on actors: one covering Erlang by Dennis, and one on Elixir, by Alan, and the group wanted to know how F#’s actors/agents worked. Seeing as I’d only first heard of actors in December, I spent all last month attempting to devour what I could find.

Here’re some of the most useful articles and videos I found recently.

I am totally planning to post my slides and demos, but wanted to reorganize and rewrite parts first.
