My F# Journey – F# Learning Resources

Thinking about learning functional programming with F#?  Here is a list of F# learning resources that will help you on your own F# journey. Robert C. Martin – Functional Programming: What? Why? When? Why is functional programming becoming such a hot topic? Just what is functional programming anyway? And when am I going to have to know about it? In this talk Uncle Bob will walk you through the rationale that is driving the current push towards functional programming. He’ll also introduce you to the basics by walking through some simple Clojure code. F# Software Foundation A wealth of… Read More »My F# Journey – F# Learning Resources

This is a first blog post in a series to document my experiences while learning functional programming. This is my F# Journey. During my 15 year career that started in the late 90’s, I have not made very many conscious decisions about learning a specific language or technology.  The path I’ve taken and the experience I’ve gained seems like it just happened naturally. As someone always wanting to learn, I usually find some interesting topics and start going down the rabbit hole (Domain Driven Design, CQRS, Event Sourcing… thanks Greg Young), however I never usually set out on a “I’m going… Read More »My F# Journey – What I’ve learned so far

In my previous blog Query Objects instead of Repositories, I demonstrated creating query objects and handlers to encapsulate and execute query logic instead of polluting a repository with both read and write methods.  Since we have moved away from repositories and are now using query objects, we will introduce the Mediator pattern. It will allows have a common interface that can be injected into our controller or various parts of our application. The mediator will delegate our query objects to the appropriate handler that will perform the query and return the results. First we will create an interface that will… Read More »Query Objects with a Mediator
