Build a 2048 bot hands on with Canopy

2048 is a fun (and very addictive) game that can be played on the Web:

http://gabrielecirulli.github.io/2048/ 

Canopy is an awesome F# UI web testing framework, built on top of Selenium:

http://lefthandedgoat.github.io/canopy/ 

Let's put them together, and build a simple bot that plays 2048, using Canopy! 

This session will be organized as an interactive workshop. Come over, and learn yourself some F# for great good! F# beginners are very welcome - it will be a great opportunity to see F# in action, and why it's awesome.

To get the most from the session please try and bring a laptop along with F# installed (ideally either Xamarin Studio, MonoDevelop or Visual Studio); you can find detailed instructions for OSX, Linux and Windows on fsharp.org

To speed up the process a bit, you might also want to take a look at the Canopy documentation beforehand, and maybe give it a spin before the session. 

And if you've never used F# before and want a head-start, check the great online intro tutorials on TryFSharp.org
