This month, RIIS Software Developer, Onorio Catenacci, will discuss alternate languages for the CLR. Most developers think of C# and .Net as being synonymous but this is a bit of a misconception. There are other languages available to the .Net developer – languages that can make certain jobs much easier and less error-prone.


Onorio will discuss some of these alternate .Net languages and how to integrate them into a .Net project. Onorio is a software developer with 20+ years of experience. He’s especially interested in functional programming and he lead the F# special interest group in Southfield for several years. He also led the Great Lakes Functional Programming Conference in Ann Arbor in 2012.
