Oxford Team Using F# Wins "Lambda: The Gathering" ICFP 2011 Programming Competition

The winners of the annual ICFP Programming Competition were announced at at ICFP 2011 in Tokyo. Two of the slides from the presentation night are below. The tsunami disaster is mentioned in the full deck, I find it hard to write this blog post, I am lost for words at the thought of what the country has been through.

But still, It’s official – we’re now allowed to say that F# is the programming language of choice for discriminating hackers 🙂 This is the honourable title given for the language used by the winners of the competition.

Congratulations to the team from Oxford! And hoping to see many more F# entries next year…
