With the release of Swift, functional programming for mobile apps suddenly flew into the limelight. But did you realize that F# has been a solid mobile option for much longer? It's entirely possible to write fully native, cross-platform mobile apps completely in F#! For this session, I'll concentrate on the features of F# that make it uniquely and especially suited to iOS development, while covering both iOS basics and F# basics, so you'll have all the tools to run with your own app idea when we're done!
