KEYNOTE - F# Information Rich Programming

Modern programming thrives on rich spaces of data, information and services. With future version of F#, Microsoft is bringing you a tool that massively simplifies information-rich analytical programming. providing integrated support for F# Information Rich Programming, a new and powerful way of integrating data and services into the programming experience.

In this talk we take a look at the new features we’re looking at for F#, including F# Type Providers and F# Queries, with applications to leverage technologies such as data markets, web services, streaming data and traditional SQL databases.

Don Syme

Don Syme is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Mobile Tools and Microsoft Research, Cambridge. He works with researchers, Microsoft and open source communities to make better programming technologies, and, through that, make people more productive and happier.

Programming with the Stars featuring surprise celebrities from C# and F# communities

This session is designed to help you shift into the functional mindset. Many programming articles set out a problem and give a completed solution, but leave out the steps in the middle. In this session our panel of programming stars will be given a set of problems to solve, and they will describe the steps that they go through to get to a functional solution, in both C# and F#.

Data access in F#, Today and Tomorrow

In the first part of this practical session, you'll learn about accessing data using dynamic operator in F# 2.0 and C# 4.0. In the second part, you'll learn about using and also creating F# type providers.

Phil Trelford

Building Applications with F#

We’ll look at what using a functional programming language changes in your applications structure and what it doesn’t.

We’ll see how F# interactive can be used to experiment with your code to help quickly find a solution to the problem you’re working on and test it works correctly.

We’ll also discover how these informal experimentations can be turned into a robust library or application with a working test suite.

Finally, we’ll look at both using F# for server applications and on the client for creating GUIs using common design patterns such as MVVM & MVC.

Robert Pickering

Robert Pickering is a software engineer with an interested in using functional programming, particularly F#, to solve real world problems.
