F# (pronounced F sharp) is a strongly typed, functional-first programming language that supports object-oriented and imperative programming. The open-source language was developed by Microsoft Research and is fully integrated with Visual Studio. F# is used in finance, machine learning, data analysis, and scientific computing. It's interoperable with other .NET languages like C#, which allows sharing code across the platform. The language can handle complex operations using its mathematical syntax making it well-suited for numerical computing and algorithmic development while also remaining approachable for general-purpose development on the .NET ecosystem.
