F-Sharp Numerical Optimization and Instant Messaging

Thursday, 29th April at Skills Matter, London

This meetup was organised by F#unctional Londoners Meetup Group in April 2010

Welcome to the inaugural meetup of the London F-Sharp User Group held at Skills Matter. We have two talks planned and plenty of opportunity to mingle and exchange ideas.

Designing a Numerical Optimization Library in F-Sharp

Naoufel El Bachir will discuss the design of a numerical optimization library in F#, illustrating how F# allows one to express mathematical problems in a very natural way.

He will discuss the design of an abstract interface, then look in some detail at the implementation of 1 or 2 algorithms, including the easy parallelization of some algorithms.

Naoufel El Bachir

Naoufel has recently founded FinBoost Limited to provide quantitative analysis services. He is also under contract Royal Bank Of Scotland to help with the development of the methodology for the Counterparty Exposure system across asset classes.

Real World Experience of F-Sharp

Phil Trelford will share his real world experience of applying F-Sharp to a recent project he has been working on: integrating instant messaging into a Trading Platform.

Technologies covered will include F# Agents, F# Asynchronous Workflows, WPF, XMPP and BDD.

Expect to see plenty of code.

Phil Trelford

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.
