There has been awhile since my last post. I’d like to share a really good posts that I’ve read recently.
As usual, I want to share two articles:
5 Lessons We’ve Learned Using AWS
Working with the Chaos Monkey
The second is a post based on the first one, both are good to think about: “the best way to avoid failure is to fail constantly”
Because of I’m curious about technology, I’ve decide share some links and comments about it.
In general the process is simple:
1. Download the F# distribution from microsoft site or codeplex
Uncompress and run the install script 😉
2. You can also download the additional scripts.
Same procedure from http://fsxplat.codeplex.com/, the installation is similar uncompress and run the installation script. There is a chance where you can get the following error:
install-bonus.sh: 28: Syntax error: “(” unexpected (expecting “}”)
If so, change the first line from
#! /bin/sh -e

At last but not least, you can install the add-in for mono
A good amount of steps can be located at http://functional-variations.net/monodevelop/ , or you can try just by adding the repository and install it 😉 (repository http://functional-variations.net/addin )
and pretty much that it. if you want to see a video, there is one available at http://functional-variations.net/crossplatform/.
