Programme

Using F# to change the way we work

The real power of F# in industry stems from its ability to solve problems that could not be solved before. In this lecture I shall walk through the design and implementation of a bespoke business rules engine that went into production earlier this year at one of the world's largest insurance companies. Rather than making incremental improvements by rewriting legacy solutions, we overhauled their entire delivery process. Software updates that used to take at least 9 months, cost over £1m and involve dozens of people can now be done in minutes by a single non-technical person at minimal cost to the company. F# was the tool that made this possible.

Jon Harrop

Dr Jon Harrop BA MA MSci PhD (Cantab) managing director and cofounder, worked as a graphic design artist and computer programmer in industry from 1992 before earning four degrees in the physical sciences from the University of Cambridge. Jon is the primary author of The F#.NET Journal articles (2007-2010) and books such as OCaml for Scientists (2005), F# for Scientists (2007), Visual F# 2010 for Technical Computing (2009) and the forthcoming Multicore .NET as well as a coauthor of New Intelligent Printing Techniques (1995), Smart Cards in Transport (1997), The Future of Chipless Smart Labels (2002) and dozens of other books.

Programming with the Stars

Michael Newton

Developer, Architect, Trainer, Consultant; Michael runs @mavnn ltd along with his wife, providing training and consultancy. If it relates to learning about or using anything that relates to .net, functional programming or build/infrastructure tooling we can probably help you.

Richard Minerich

F# Koans

Rachel Reese

Rachel Reese is a long-time software engineer and math geek who can often be found talking to random strangers about the joys of functional programming and F#. She currently handles training & evangelism for Jet.com in the NYC area, and has a habit of starting user groups: so far, in Hoboken, NJ (Pluralsight Study Group), Nashville, TN (@NashFSharp) and Burlington, VT (@VTFun).

Try F# from Zero to Data Science

We'll help you explore, generate, and just play around with code samples, as well as talk you through some of the key principles of F#. By the end of this session, you'll have gone from zero to data science in only a few hours!

Undertone

You will first learn how to create and visualise individual notes, learning how different shape waves make different sounds and how sound effects like overdrive can be simulated. You’ll then go on to see how notes can be sequenced to make tunes and get the chance to make up their own riffs.

Finally, you will see how you can load existing music files in most formats and use the Undertone tools set to sample and edit these sound files to make new and interesting tunes.

Most of the exercises will target users who are new to F#, they’ll also be series of advanced exercises available where experienced users can tinker with the inner workings of Undertone and contribute new features to the project.

Robert Pickering

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

Machine Learning for Fun and Profit

Matt Moloney

Matthew Moloney heads up Earthquake Enterprises, creators of the Tsunami IDE. He has worked as an Applied Researcher at Microsoft Research, Cambridge on Big Data tooling and at eBay on Hadoop cluster tooling used for Big Data Analytics.

Phil Trelford

Phil is an active member of the software development community, regularly attending and speaking at user groups and conferences, blogging and contributing to open source projects. He is a co-organizer of the London F# User Group and a founding member of the F# Foundation.

Time for Functions in the Enterprise

Lets take a typical business problem and try to create a different kind of domain model using functions, types, immutability, composition and higher order functions. Join a white-knuckle ride of design tensions as we use the functional features of F# in anger on a real-world problem.

Simon Cousins

Simon Cousins is a software developer actively applying muti-paradigm programming techniques to solve complex problems within enterprise applications.

Graph Man Contest

Richard Minerich

Richard Minerich is a Sr. Researcher at Bayard Rock. Functional Programmer. Co-author of Professional F# 2.0 and F# MVP. Loves Type Systems, Machine Learning and Physics.

Web Programming

Microsoft's F# programming language provides many features that lend themselves well to web development. These features combined with other modern web development tools such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and a plethora of web frameworks and libraries allow developers to build rich, web based solutions easier and faster than ever before.

You'll learn multiple approaches that involve the use of F# as the primary workhorse on the server as well as how to build full-stacks with F#. Along the way, we'll look at a few of the many features of F# that will improve your web development efforts. You owe it to yourself to learn the skills needed to build modern web applications with a modern programming language.

Dan Mohl
