How can I get started?

How can I get started with Fortran? The Programming in Fortran book was aimed at scientists, and frankly, I’m not a scientist. What do you suggest?

Welcome to the Discourse,

you can start with the tutorials of the community:

What programming languages do you already know and use? What problem(s) are you trying to solve?

I currently use F#.

Also, is this a good tut? Fortran 90 Tutorial

I don’t know F#, so cannot offer a simply approach for jumping from F# to modern Fortran. The tutorial you asked about is as good of place to start as any. You can find a long list of tutorials are Tutorials in Fortran Wiki.

I’ve got a couple of courses available if you’re willing to spend a little money. Online Courses But as already mentioned, fortran-lang.org has some good free content.

You’ll find the prevailing style in Fortran quite different from F#, but there are some aspects of Fortran that are amenable to functional programming techniques. I have adopted a reasonably functional style in most of my open source libraries.

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your forays into the world of Fortran. Don’t hesitate to come back here asking questions as you’re learning.
