Tomas Petricek is a long-time F# enthusiast, Microsoft MVP and author of a book Real-World Functional Programming (http://manning.com/petricek). He leads functional programming and F# courses in London and New York and contributed to the development of F# as an intern and contractor at Microsoft Research in Cambridge. He is a PhD student at University of Cambridge, working on functional programming languages.
Migrating from our machine learning trend, we'll be exploring Type providers with the one and only Tomas Petricek!
In this hands-on session we’ll have fun with F# type providers! In most programming languages, accessing data is pain – you have to parse data into some object and then dynamically extract the value you are interested in, or you need to use some external tool for code generation.
The session will be a mix of demos and interactive tasks. We’ll finish with a treasure hunt competition where you’ll have to find clues from 6 different data sources and combine them to find a secret phrase!
