We started as a team of three in August 2019 building a greenfield product for a new start-up, supplying GPS data 24/7/365 for a new cloud-hosted efficient, fast, and accurate ETA calculator for trucks delivering goods across Europe. We wanted to use a functional programming language and after careful consideration, we chose F# and .NET Core. Today, we have grown to a team of eight, are offered as a product in our own right, and are processing nearly 8 million GPS signals per day.
In this session, you will discover why we adopted F#'s functional-first philosophy and the positive impact that decision has had on product development and the lives of our team. We will look at the language features that enable us to confidently connect to over 250 different sources of data with relative ease and minimise production issues. If you want to see why F# is such a great choice for building scalable Web APIs and services, then this is a session that you need to see!

It's a stress-free life being an F# dev
Software developer for over 25 years. C# since 2003. Re-discovered my passion when I found functional programming and F#. I work remotely for Softwarepark, a specialist software and data science supplier based in Vienna, Austria. I specialise in presenting F# to newcomers to the language at user groups and through my employer's blog.
