    Comments about oreilly Building Web, Cloud, and Mobile Solutions with F#:

    Daniel Mohl is a Microsoft F# MVP, F# and C# Insider.

    The Book is really well written and short.
    It covers all the hot topics (Web, Cloud and Mobile development) on only 175 pages. What i really like is that Daniel has links to websites with further information for specific topics all over the Book.
    The targeted audience are clearly mid- to senior-level .NET programmers.

    In the first chapter Daniel shows how to write ASP.NET MVC 4 Web applications with F#. He further shows topics and techniques that are not specifically related to ASP.NET MVC 4 (like Entity Framework).

    The second chapter is all about the process of creating various types of web services with F#. Different frameworks for constructing services (Serivce Stack, Nancy, Frank) and improving the unit tests (FsUnit, Unquote and NaturalSpec) are shown.

    In the third chapter Daniel walks us through creating and deploying F# solutions for the cloud.

    The fourth chapter "Constructing Scalable Web and Mobile Solutions" provides additional approaches and F# examples to what we have seen in the chapters before.

    The fifth chapter is about creating web-centric, client-side code with a functional style. It is not 100% pure F#.

    The Book has 3 appendices which are really interesting and useful. They provide further info on useful tools and libraries, Websites and Client-Side technologies.

    This book get 5 stars from me.
