The F# Handout Available

I made a fancy handout for those interested in learning the F# language. This is a beginner's guide through the syntax and features of the language in an easily digestible two page format. Suitable for lamination!

Most the content is drawn from the Visual Studio examples and Chris Smith's excellent F# in 20 Minutes blog series.

There is a PDF version: http://www.hamletdarcy.com/files/2008/TheFSharpHandout.pdf
and a Word version (should you want to edit it).

Nice handout, for a more printer friendly version I would take a white background. Definitely something I'm gonna keep with me while exploring F#

Yeah, you kinda have to print it in color.

Also, Expert F# has an 8 page appendix that is another language guide, which has been really useful to me.

Thanks for your nice handout, I was about to start coding F# when I noticed that the language was not installed in my VS 2005, I'm sure I read that it is completely compatible but it simply doesn't appear, I can see C++, J#, C# and of course VB; do you have any comments about what I've done wrong (I can see the install and I can run the console which tells me I have it there) Thanks in advance

You have to download and install the "Visual Studio Shell" (free) and then download and install the "F# CTP" into it. Google will give you the best links.
