In this latest course from FSharp.TV, we are going to learn Functional-First Programming with F# and explore what it takes to build a web server library in F#. 
How has the course been structured?  

We all know reading the source code of a widely used library/project will help us to learn a programming language better. But how about learning a language by (re)building the project itself from the ground up? Sounds interesting, isn’t it? 
In this course, we are going to build a minimal version of the Suave library, a popular web development library in F#. 
We will be creating the library by focusing on one requirement at a time, and evolve it incrementally.
Note: To get most out of this course, code side by side with the videos and experience the essence of functional programming.

What is Suave?
Suave, a simple web development library in F#. It provides a lightweight, non-blocking web server and a set of combinators to manipulate route flow and task composition. The non-blocking I/O model is efficient and suitable for building fast, scalable network applications.
By Completing this course, You will learn
•Three-Step Approach – A useful technique to develop applications using Functional Programming•A real world application of Combinator Pattern•Internals of the Suave library•Last but not the least, you are going to experience how to put the pieces together and build a complete project using functional programming principles and techniques.
