1. Building an ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Application with F#

Chapter 1. Building an ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Application with F#

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Sir Arthur Charles Clarke

I’ve always loved magic. For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed watching master magicians performing their craft. As I grew up, I read every book I could find on how to master the tricks that astounded me through the years. I quickly found that I enjoyed learning how to perform magic tricks even more than I enjoyed watching them.

As Sir Arthur Charles Clarke states, technology can often feel like magic. Maybe that is why I love technology so much. F# falls into this category more so than many of the other languages I have used throughout my programming exploits. The features that it provides bring great power that can occasionally feel like magic. Sometimes it can be difficult to determine how best to apply that magic in practical ways to achieve better, faster, and more scalable web, cloud, and mobile solutions. This book will show you how to leverage the full power of F# to solve your everyday development problems.
