Join Kit Eason for an in-depth discussion in this video Target audience and prerequisites, part of Developing Financial Applications in F#.
- [Presenter] Before we get started, I just wanted to say a few words about the target audience and the prerequisites for this course. The target audience really is any interested software developer. Maybe software developers with some .NET exposure, such as C# and VB.NET developers. Or maybe software developers with experience of functional languages on other platforms, such as ML or Haskell. Having said all that, if you're a keen programmer or you're keen on programming in general, it doesn't actually matter what you already know.
I suspect you will be able to follow along with this course. In terms of prerequisites, it's not a bad idea to have some experience of Visual Studio and it's not a bad idea to have some experience of at least one other programming language. C# can help you out. VB.NET will give you at least the .NET exposure. Or, on the functional side, if you've seen Haskell, or OCaml, you'll see a lot that's familiar to you in this course.
