Nessos is the main contributor of MBrace, the world's first big data cloud framework, fully based on F#.
We are a Greek based ISV company, focused on Microsoft .NET technologies with vast expertise in parallel computing and business applications. We are the first company in Greece to utilize F# in real-world production applications and one of the earliest adopters of Microsoft .NET. Besides implementing custom software and offering consulting services for big private and public sector corporations, we are also very active in producing quality open-source F# components like Streams, FsPickler and Vagabond, available on GitHub.
Our goal is to make MBrace the cloud framework of choice for the Microsoft .NET community.
Meta-Programming Madness with the Mixin Type Provider
Featuring Ross McKinlay
F#'s erasing type providers are a ground-breaking feature that (amongst other things) remove the need for a whole lot of boilerplate code which you would otherwise have to write or generate. Does this mean that you never have a need to generate code in F#? Of course it doesn't!...f# functional-programming type-providers metaprogramming
Featuring Mark Seemann
The F# type system is both stronger and more flexible than the type system in e.g. C#. You can use this to your advantage to rapidly evolve a prototype. In this talk you'll see an example of how to evolve a Finite State Machine that solves a real problem, using the F# type system as a driver....f# functional-programming types finite-state-machine
Developing Open Source tooling with F#: the story of Visual F# Power Tools
Featuring Anh-Dung Phan
Tooling is often understood as a tricky and tedious area of software development. This talk discusses how F# makes tooling development fun again. In particular, we investigate a few F# features that are great for creating IDE extensions and report an experience on ensuring correctness at a large...f# functional-programming .net
Computation expression in context : a history of the otter king
Featuring Andrea Magnorsky
I heard that computation expressions are kind of like monads, I heard that monads are like burritos or space suits and that they are pretty much magical, I also heard that they are monoids in the category of endofunctors...f# functional-programming gaming
MBrace: harnessing the cloud with .NET
Featuring Nick Palladinos
MBrace is an open source cloud framework written in F#. In this talk we'll be describing the programming model in both F# and C# and demonstrating how one can seamlessly deploy large-scale computation in Azure.mbrace f# functional-programming .net azure cloud
Expression Oriented Programming with F#
Featuring Robert Pickering
This talk take a deep look at some of the basics of programming: expressions, statements, scope and how we represent data. We’ll look at these concepts to through the lens of a functional programmer to see how this, contrasts to the way an Object Oriented programmer might do things. We’ll look at...f# functional-programming application-architecture
F# and SignalR for a fast Web
