F# Talk in Hereford

The Smart Devs group in Hereford kindly asked me to talk to them about F#.  We had a great evening, with loads of pizza and swag.  Thank you Smart Devs for such a friendly reception.

Here are links to the materials:

The planetarium demo – demonstrates use (and some of the pitfalls) of the SQL Server type provider.  (It’s worth reading the readme for this one before plunging in.)

PowerPoint presentation – this includes some material on the Freebase type provider that we didn’t do because of slow internet connection.
