Tutorial: Implementing a shopping cart with WebSharper

Last week I had <a href="http://www.communityforfsharp.net/september-2010-live-meeting">a Community for F#</a> talk on WebSharper where I presented a small WebSharper application to implement a client-based, persistent shopping cart, and I received numerous emails asking for the source code for that talk. So in this post I am going to show you the full source code and walk you through what I did to implement the shopping cart functionality. The code provided here should work on any existing 1.0.X installation, preferably on the latest 1.0.28 release.

CUFP 2010 - Call for Participation

Functional programming languages have been a hot topic of academic research for over 35 years, and have seen an ever larger practical impact in settings ranging from tech startups to financial firms to biomedical research labs. At the same time, a vigorous community of practically-minding functional programmers has come into existence. CUFP is designed to serve this community. The annual CUFP workshop is a place where people can see how others are using functional programming to solve real world problems; where practitioners meet and collaborate; where language designers and users can share ideas about the future of their favorite language; and where one can learn practical techniques and approaches for putting functional programming to work. CUFP 2010 will feature three hour Functional Programming tutorials given by language experts on the first day and Experience and Technical Talks on day two. Attendees may attend either or both days.

WebSharper available in Visual Studio Gallery

You can now install WebSharper through Visual Studio 2010's Extension Manager with a single click.
