Programme

Practical Functional-first Programming with F#

The tutorial will begin with a short lecture introducing the core value proposition of F# - robust, efficient, type-safe, succinct analytical programming which can be deployed in the enterprise context.

You’ll then progress through a series of worked examples for learning functional and OO programming in F#, including the F# Koans, samples for interactive charting and some introductory algorithms.

You’ll also learn how to use F# with partner technologies such as C#, math/statistics libraries, databases, REST services, ASP.NET, Azure, client-side Javascript and OData.

F# Koans

Chris Marinos

Chris Marinos is a software consultant/geek hailing from Ann Arbor, MI. He is also a C(F)# MVP, F#/functional programming enthusiast, (ab)user of LINQ, speaker, code/language guy, video game connoisseur, and tv buff.

Processing concurrent time-series data

We start with a brief introduction to asynchronous programming and then spend most of the time developing systems using re-usable agent based library. You’ll see that composing complex functionality is easy, if you have the right set of building blocks! At the end, we’ll also dive into the details of efficient agent implementation.
