Creating Type Providers: Hands On with Michael Newton

Thursday, 1st May in London

This meetup was organised by F#unctional Londoners Meetup Group in May 2014


Interested in creating your own first type provider? Join The London F#unctional User Group who will provide expert advice on how to construct and hack providers already out there.

Creating Type Providers: Hands On with Michael Newton

In this session we'll start from a brand new Visual Studio project and work as a group to a type provider which:

  • Creates a namespace
  • Adds a type to that namespace with:
  • a static property
  • a constructor or 2
  • an instance property
  • an instance method

After that the workshop will continue with an opportunity for you to create your own first type provider with expect advice at hand or (if you're an old hand at all this) hack on some of the excellent open source type providers out there already.

Please come along with a laptop.
