Join us at Skills Matter for the monthly F#unctional Londoners UG. This month, Kit Eason and Phil Trelford will present on all things F#.
F# - that strange beast tucked under 'Other languages' in your Visual Studio setup. You don't know much about it, but you are sure of one thing: "It won't ever get used here!"
This talk gives you the tools to get past the 'not here' barrier:
Instant gratification: Practical wins - right here, right now!
Guerilla tactics: become a Functional Trotskyist.
Epic win: How we coded a game changing calculation engine, in a couple of evenings, while watching the telly.
Kit Eason is a highly experienced developer, working in industries from automotive engineering to energy trading. Kit is a Lynda.com/LinkedIn and PluralSight author. He's written software in F# for purposes as diverse as Pension Scheme Valuation, Movie VFX Costing, and Commodities Trading. An F# algorithm he dashed off for a conference demo became part of the UK national energy infrastructure. He talks about F# to whoever will listen.
This talk is for C# programmers who are curious about F#, a new multi-paradigm programming language in Visual Studio 2010. In: test driven development, classes and functions Out: maths, monads and moth-eaten jumpers
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.
