As you know COALESCE function returns the first non NULL value from the list.
When you execute the followingselect coalesce(null,null,null)
you will get the following error Msg 4127, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
At least one of the arguments to COALESCE must be an expression that is not the NULL constant.
But when you execute the following select coalesce(null,null+1,null)
It returns NULL
Question : How does the second query work although NULL+1 is NULL?
If you're writing an academic paper or journal, what should you reference for F#? Well, of course it's up to you! :-) But the topic came up here at MSR Cambridge this evening (after all, it is that time of year - POPL deadline!)
Here are some options. I've included a BibTex reference for Expert F# further below since it's not so easy to find an auto-generated one on the usual sites.
For F# as a language
I recommend referencing either Expert F#
(for the earliest, end-to-end description of the language) or Expert F# 2.0
(for a more up-to-date reference),

Last week, I was busy with another user group tour in the UK for Telerik. This year,
I was able to give a total of 7 sessions in 4 cities (Hereford, Cheltenham, Bristol
and Southampton). A lot of people stopped by to join me on an exploration of some
Windows 8 and Windows Phone talks. During the talks, we looked at the upcoming Telerik
controls for Windows 8
which will make LOB development much easier in the Windows

We needed a single-select list box for a web application we’re building. We also needed each item in the list to have rich formatting, so we didn’t want to use the built-in list box. I knew that jQuery UI had a Selectable widget that looked very promising. However we didn’t want multi-selection or the other advanced features it provides. I was somewhat surprised when I did a search on Bing that I didn’t find any guidance on how to create a single-select list box with jQuery. However I did find enough hints. It turned out to be really simple. If
I were a more experience web developer, I probably would have known all of this. This blog post is for people like me who aren’t web experts yet. The solution involves adding a custom data- attribute to each item in the list, creating CSS entries for hover and selected, and writing a single jQuery method that handles updating the section. In the example below, I’m using data-query on HTML elements, like this:
@foreach (Query query in Model)
Next I added some CSS to display...(Read whole news on source site)
