Quoting 
A bit more useful for math enthusiasts and number crunchers, VSLab (vslab.codeplex.com) provides an F#-based interactive visualization environment similar to Matlab within Visual Studio.

In this case i chance nothing. Python, R und Matlab a similar and F# goes to school und must learn a lot. It needs time for F# with his bigger brother C# and the communities.
I can remember on D http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D_(programming_language), but D sleeps well. There a lot of great resources on the web. But what do you want? Fix solution or time consuming solution.

Causality is the relationship between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), where the second event is a consequence of the first.

I had a dream of learning common LISP and applying it to trading, until you realize why such a language is not so applied...
If I was 17 and interested in algo trading I think I could see going to school with F# in mind...although still probably learn LISP
I'm with ze german here though..many a language "sleeps well"...

F# sounds great if I was bound by the language not being able to express my trading ideas.
My trading ideas are the problem though, changing the language will not help that.

I read this thread with great interest last year, but I never pursued it further. It does look interesting. I am currently using/learning MATLAB, but want to take the next step soon.

Is anyone on this board using F# now?

Bump!

I know there are a lot of good programmers on this board, and I, a programming illiterate, need help. After relying solely on Excel for years, I started using Mathematica and MATLAB for research this summer. It has made my life easier, but I want/need to take the next step. F# seems to do what I want, but, as it is relatively new, there is not that much info to be found. Will it continue to grow or die a slow death?

Seeing as I can combine it with C# (in time), and use Visual Studio for programming, it seems to be the easiest way to get started for me. I can use the .NET builder in MATLAB to export my current research, e.g. I have always thought I would learn C++ if I ever were to learn to code, but I have decided that I am not up to this task now. My main intention is doing research and test ideas, I will have a professional programmer implement them for me.

So what say ye? F#, Haskell or OCaml? Or something else?

F# is a function based language comparable to R or maybe Matlab, C# is a Object based language comparable to C++, Python, and most any major language.. With Microsoft purchase of Revolution R (R for Visual Studio) suggests that they may move in that direction; it may make sense to learn R with either the ide R Studio or Revolution R. There is a much large online support for R then F# (cough Github).

Cheers,

Sody

Matlab is a dialect of C build on Java. It's not functional at all.

F# looks like a .net solution for python. Python is a big player and F# can be.
Python is still in use in the finance business. F# runs in the CIL same as C#.

Seems more like Microsoft's answer to haskell. F# was a big step forward a couple of years ago, when functional programming wasn't that well-known outside academia. But nowadays the best parts have been brought back to C# and F# just outlived it's purpose IMO. We will probably see more "all of the above" style multiparadigm languages. C# and Java have gone this way, Apple have thrown their weight behind this concept with their new Swift language as well.

That's why I said Maybe !

I would not consider MATLAB a object oriented language, would you?

Matlab is the best described as "array/matrix based imperative (procedural) language"... and you can write object oriented code in it.

The same can be said about functional languages (putting purity aside) - you can write object oriented code in eg. Common Lisp (CLOS) or Racket (my personal favorite for small tinkering projects)

Really, the more important distinction is between imperative(procedural) and functional(declarative) languages
