#ProgFSharpLDN 2016 Wrap Up!

Doug Bruce shares what he is looking forward to at Progressive F# Tutorials!





I am excited to joining Prog F# where I will be sharing my thoughts on…

FinTech in F#! This is an area that I work with every day at Redington, where we’re trying to make 100 million people financially secure, and I think it has the potential to improve people’s lives — if applied properly!

The problem in a nutshell?

Most of us aren’t saving enough for our future. This isn’t something that’s going to go away - we’re living longer and many of us are underestimating how much money we need for a comfortable retirement.

How can we help solve this problem?

By harnessing the power of F# to deliver clear and easy-to-understand advice and recommendations that takes you on a journey from confused to confident. Over the last couple of years, robo-advisors have emerged as a platform for automating this advice as one part of the Fintech revolution. If you come along to my workshop, you’ll get to build a fully functioning web-based robo advisor that will tell you if you’re on track to hit your savings goals, and give you recommendations if you aren’t quite there yet.

The best thing about being part of the F# community is…

The sheer number of incredibly useful open-source projects that people dedicate their free time to. You’ll see them used in any F# talk or workshop, whoever the speaker, and I plan to be no exception! Ones that spring to mind are Ionide, Paket, Fake and Suave. Each one solves a real problem that F~ developers have and hugely improved the experience of F# devs, new and old!

At Progressive F# Tutorials, I most look forward to learning about…

How F# can be used for Web development. I’ll admit to having used the language primarily for back-end work - domain modelling, business logic, financial calculations, etc. What I’d love to get out of the upcoming tutorials tutorials is a bit more understanding of how to get F# playing nicely with the internet — I’m told it’s the future, after all.

My talk will be enjoyed by…

Anyone who wants to see the power and flexibility of F# as a language. Ever wondered how to really model your domain as it is in real-life? I’ll show you how, using F#’s algebraic data types. Still wrangling with csv files to get your data into your app and creating fiddly charts? F# can help by way of a type provider and a brilliant charting library. Unsure how to get your content onto the web without using a big heavy framework? Enter Suave and WebSharper!

I think the most anticipated/exciting development for the F# community over the next 12 months will be…

The evolution of the community-driven projects that I mentioned previously, into the ‘dominant’ tool or framework in their area. I think they are tantalisingly close to replacing the out-of-the-box tools that you get form something like Visual Studio, and am looking forward to the day that they do so!

Wrap-up

I’m pretty excited about giving this workshop — I get to show off the power of F#, and use it to build something that I think could really help people!

Jorge Fioranelli tells us why you should be excited for his talk at Progressive F# Tutorials 2016





Learning F# can be hard for many developers, as they need to learn a new paradigm and a new language at the same time.

My workshop will be enjoyed by developers who are new to F# and Functional Programming as it is built to help beginners to grasp the basic concepts and the F# syntax by practicing and writing code.

At Progressive F# Tutorials, I most look forward to learning about what others are doing with F# and sharing what we do at Jet.com, the company with the biggest F# team in the world.

Tamizh Vendan shares some thoughts on programming in F#!





Solving complex problems with less code is the beauty of programming in F#. But for programmers who are coming from imperative or object-oriented programming backgrounds, it is very hard to think from a different perspective and follow the design principles of functional programming.

Functional Programming is not as hard as you think. My workshop will help you to demystify the perceived complexities of functional programming and empower you to get started in using F#.

I am very excited to be a part of Progressive F# Tutorials; I most look forward to learning from some of the best minds in the F# Community.

The F# community welcomes Alfonso Garcia-Caro and his thoughts on Fable!




My workshop will be about Fable, the F# to JS compiler I created to take advantage of the new capabilities of two powerful code transformation tools: the F# compiler itself and Babel, a project to manipulate JavaScript ASTs (Abstract Syntax Trees). Fable is a lightweight compiler with the goal of integrating really well with the JS ecosystem. Thanks to this, it's really easy to use any of the numerous JS development tools like Webpack, React (including React Native to ) or Redux. This means you can still use all the beloved F# features without any handicap compared to JS developers. As it's usually said: Fable brings in the best of two worlds!

But the F# Progressive Tutorials won't be only about frontend development. The possibilities of F# go far beyond that and I'm really looking forward to learning from the best minds of the F# community (like Mathias Brandewinder or Evelina Gabasova), about Machine Learning, server development, profiling and many other topics.

These are really exciting times for F#. Thanks to Mono, Xamarin, Websharper and the IDE support in Emacs or recently in Atom and Visual Studio Code (with Ionide), F# was able to cross Windows' boundaries a long time ago. But it is now, with NETCore and Fable, that F# is finally becoming a true cross-platform language.
