Lets go more functional - F# WHAT , WHY and BI
Functional Programming :- It emphasizes on functions rather than change of state .

So with this language I would say Microsoft has finally married off mathematical modellers and programmers and made a bigger happier family.
Don Syme from Microsoft Research lab is the principle architect .
Purpose of this session is to introduce functional programming and a quick look at how it can add value to BI in present and will impact BI of future.
