Join us for a talk from Gian Ntzik and George Stavroulakis on F# in the cloud.
Cloud computing services, such as Microsoft Windows Azure or Amazon AWS, are becoming increasingly popular as means of reducing infrastructure operating costs. Such services offer unlimited and on-demand computational and storage resources where the underlying infrastructure is managed by the service provider. However, in order to harness the power of the cloud, one typically follows the paradigms of distributed computing, making it a challenging task. With the F# monadic structures we can make this a lot easier. We will talk about M-Brace, a cloud computing framework, based on the power of F# computational expressions (Monads). Through them we can express cloud based computations abstracted over the details of distribution, bringing the developer closer to the more natural computing paradigms.
Please note: unfortunately due to illness Mike Hadlow will not be able to make it down on Monday to present the previously billed Monads in C# talk; we hope he feels better soon.
