Teaching F#: From numerical expressions to 3D graphics (Video)

One of the key concepts of functional programming is compositionality – the fact that we can build complex software using several basic “building blocks” and just a few ways of combining them. In this talk, Tomas Petricek demonstrate how we can teach this concept using F#. We’ll start with a basic example of this approach that even high-school students can easily understand – numerical expressions. Then we’ll move to more exciting examples of using library for composing 3D graphics. We’ll see that creating a fractal tree is not much more complicated than calculating the area of a triangle.
