Yan Cui Builds Games in F#

Episode #846 Thursday, February 14, 2013

Carl and Richard talk to Yan Cui about his experience building games with F#. Yan talks about his experiences working with games through Facebook, the client side being predominantly Flash, but the back end systems being initially Java, then converted to C#, and now to F#.
