WebSharper is a mature, open source web framework for developing enterprise-grade F# web and mobile web applications. In this talk I will demonstrate how it accommodates standards-based web development; what robust, composable and sound functional programming abstractions it has for modeling user interfaces, web forms, safe URLs, and even entire web applications as F# values; and how its uniform, single-language development model makes writing client-server applications easy, fun, and robust.

Tutorial objectives

By the end of this tutorial, you will be able to create basic WebSharper applications in F# that connect to databases, fetch input from end users, and show results in client-side charts and visualizations. You will not have to write a single line of JavaScript, and you will appreciate the elegance, cleanness, and robustness of F# and functional programming to build real-life web applications.

Target audience

Basic knowledge of F# is recommended, but not strictly needed.

Either Visual Studio with the latest version of WebSharper (via http://websharper.com) installed into it, or the latest CloudSharper Local installed (via http://cloudsharper.com).
