After yet again explaining why I prefer DOTNET FSharp over something like Scala, I dug into this further for more convincing myself
Despite not being an expert here, Scala is a no go due to the botchery Oracle has decided to put the latest iterations of Java thru. The JVM is one horrid security breach I would never want to run!
I also addressed this is in a Skype session:
f# has a lot of momentum
i have used java for 8 years
[5:24:29 PM] Bryan Downing: it is old data garbage where java 8 is desparately trying to catch up to the .net innovations
[5:24:56 PM] Bryan Downing: sorry, just my POV but from a tech point, i will experiment with python is coming weeks but i am not holding my breath
[5:25:02 PM] Bryan Downing: scala is good believe it is good
As for the links above, F# is dead simple to set up with Visual Studio. I even tried it where I was impressed. When you deal with setting up something like Scala wihin Eclipse, I would rather burn myself and run around professing my love for Anton Kreil’s high quality master class in learning how to be a better trader. Hack hack.
Anyhooo..read the comments in the links above. Save yourself some time and headache.
Also, you will never please those Microsoft bashers out there, they are too stupid and ignorant to see how far Satya Nadella has brought this company out of the monopolistic and old man days of thinking. Oh well, you can never please them and what moron would base their entire trading decision because of some hatred of a tech company. That is real smart approach to trading in today’s fast changing world.FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
