Description

Modern applications need to access data from a variety of external data sources, including XML, SQL, and JSON-based services. In this course, we look at F# type providers. With type providers, you can easily explore and access a wide range of data sources directly from your code editor. We start by learning about type providers using the F# interactive and then we demonstrate how you can integrate data access code written in F# as part of a larger C# ASP.NET project.
