In Proceedings of Data Driven Functional Programming Workshop 2013
The F# language includes a feature called F# 3.0 Type Providers to support the integration of internet-scale information sources into a strongly typed functional-first programming environment. In this position paper we describe the key themes in information-rich functional programming that we have observed during this work. Our contribution is to document these themes and highlight future challenges and opportunities, in the context of a recently released, practical, open-source system for information-rich functional programming. We believe that this area is rich in excellent opportunities for future language and tooling research, information-space integration and schematization techniques.
