The A-Z of Programming Languages: F#

Microsoft researcher Don Syme talks about the development of the functional language F#.
He says Haskell (and Python) has been a huge influence on the development of F#. The F# lightweight syntax was also inspired by Haskell and Python. He also says there have been some mistakes along the way. “Some experimental features have been removed as we’re bringing F# up to product quality, and we’ve also made important cleanups to the language and library. These changes have been very welcomed by the F# community.”
