Hey Vlastimil, I have been using f# with QC for some period of time.


any advantages of using F# over using the C# ?



QC works well both with f# and c#, so advantages boil down to those of the programming languages and their infrastructure. I am using f# because it is a functional language that has many advantages over c# in this area. Well, it supports both OOP and functional style code... with emphasis on functions.

Several things are important to me: 

1. f# adds a lot to code correctness;

2. resulting code is very concise; 

3. type system of the language is super expressive and powerful. 

So summing up - this language has many advantages if you do functional programming
