In object-oriented development, we are all familiar with design patterns such as the Strategy pattern and Decorator pattern, and design principles such as SOLID.
The functional programming community has design patterns and principles as well.
This talk will provide an overview of some of these, and present some demonstrations of FP design in practice.

is F Sharp big in London City Finance center due to it can parallelize and Microsoft attracts the corporate world to functional programming popularity
A recent comment
I think there are several reasons why F# has grown so quickly in popularity. The functional paradigm is particularly well-suited for parallel programming and data science, both of which have seen tremendous growth lately.
F# is both open source and backed by a heavyweight software company. This may be attractive to corporate technologists. I have to wonder if geography has a hand as well. With F# originating from the UK, and with London being probably the most significant center of finance in the world, it is not surprising that the banking/finance sector has been an early adopter.
