Our journey to F#: Know your shortcuts

I develop code with C# for 18 years and I’m a heavy ReSharper/Rider user. So I know a lot of shortcuts. Really a lot.Actually, my fingers know them. Whenever I get asked during pair programming how I did this, I almost certainly reply with: “ask my fingers, I don’t know.”

Programming in F#, I had to retrain my fingers to use some new shortcuts that I was not used to. And that’s why I share them here with you:

To start our experiment with F#, we first needed to learn to write code in F#. Read a little I knew about the site  quite some time, but finally, I took the time to read some posts there until I thought I’m fit enough to code something real. Code a little Once upon a time, I wrote a report generator for xBehave.net in C#. The report generator generates a markdown report from the results of a test run of xBehave.net tests/specs. The code was old and lacked some features. So I started...

For the last five years, I’ve built only backend systems with C# – the clients were web clients. The backends we built were almost entirely stateless. Either the client holds the state or the state resides in a database. So we started to write stateless C# code. Today, we write lots of read-only data...
