Meet up

F# - It Won't Happen Here

Thursday, 30th August in London

This meetup was organised by F#unctional Londoners Meetup Group in August 2012

Overview

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# - It Won't Happen Here!

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.

F# Eye for the C# guy

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
