2 DAY CONFERENCE

Progressive F# Tutorials NYC 2014

Topics covered at #progfsharp

Thursday, 2nd - Friday, 3rd October at DUMBO Loft, New York City

8 experts. will be speaking. Starts at 9:00 AM.

Want to join Don Syme, Scott Wlaschin, Rachel Reese and other key members of F#'s passionate community, for two days of learning and hands-on coding? Eager to gain valuable F# skills and insights into the latest innovations?

Then join us at New York's second annual Progressive F# Tutorials for a celebration of F# and to learn the language and stack through hands on tutorials.

This year, we will bring the world's top innovators and developers together with our amazing developer community in New York to enjoy two intensive (and fun) days, packed with demos, practical sessions, discussions and lectures. Whether you are new to F# and want to learn how to think functionally or a seasoned F# engineer keen to learn more about Data-parallel processing or Building Compilers in F# - the Progressive F# Tutorials is the place to be!

Both days will be split into three-hour hands-on workshops designed to get you writing F# in production and on your way to F# utopia.

Help! I want to use F# but don't know where to start.

If you're brand new to F#, or if you are using an imperative language such as C# or Python in the workplace, we have an expert curated beginners track, which will quickly bring you up to speed. For this track, we've entrusted the help of selected experts to take you through two days of hands-on learning. You will have the opportunity to participate in 3-hour deep dive coding sessions, with help and guidance from those that have been leading the charge since the language's birth.

OK, I know how F# works and use the language regularly. But I want to explore how to unleash it's most powerful and advanced features.

The advanced track of #progfsharp is a goldmine for those wanting to take their skills to the next level. We'll have sessions from the leading F# committers, and will showcase the most innovative tools in F# and functional programming today.

I'm coming with colleagues

After a hard day of learning F#, BlueMountain Capital will host a party at the DUMBO Loft, with drinks and food so you can meet others in the community and enterprise using F#.
