What's New in F# 6.0

F# is for succinct, robust and performant code - the sweet spot of data and functions with types that don't get in your way! F# 6.0 is coming as part of .NET 6, with added JavaScript support in Fable, and I'll tell you all about what's new! High-performance async programming - no problem! Learn how we make the best with F# tasks and resumable code. We're also improving F# type inference, introducing high-performance data generation, making F# syntax simpler and delivering many tooling improvements too.
