F# courses and talks (Winter 2012 and beyond...)
A couple of months ago, I posted a list of my F# talks and courses for Autumn 2011. Although I tried hard to have fewer speaking engagements during the winter and spring, there are quite a few events that I'd like to invite you to.
Last year, I spent quite a lot of time talking about asynchronous programming and agents. I think this is still a very important topic and especially agent-based programming in F# is a powerful way to implement concurrency primitives (like blocking queue), as well as complex systems (like trading screens and market analysis). I also wrote a series of articles on this topic that are available on MSDN and should be a good starting point.

Regions and navigation bar for F# in Visual Studio
The beginning of a new year may be a good time for writing one lightweight blog post that I wanted to publish for some time now.

This mostly involved the usual features - automatic completion, colouring and tooltips. The F# IntelliSense in Visual Studio 2010 still isn't perfect, but I think it is safe to claim that it is the best IDE experience for a typed functional programming language (aside, you can vote for some F# IDE features here and here).
