Embrace the Cloud with F#

Hi all,

the next meetup of the Zurich F# Users will take place on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at 18:45 at NetException GmbH (as usual). If you attend for the first time, make sure to have this announcement with you. It contains a correct view of the location (the view on Google maps is slightly wrong).

The first half hour will be for networking/socializing, with sandwiches and drinks included. After that, Pantelis Petrogiannakis will speak about Embracing the Cloud with F#. Pantelis is owner of Nessos Information Technologies S.A., an Athens-based Microsoft Gold Partner with ISO 9001 quality certification with focus on orchestrated business solutions. Nessos has recently completed their flagship product {m}brace. Written in F#, it abstracts the underlying computer infrastructure with a monadic approach to cloud computing. Thus, the developer can combine sophisticated algorithms with "big data" processing, rapid prototyping-style, without worrying about things like data locality, information exchange between nodes, or node failures:

[<Cloud>]

let hello args = cloud { return foo args } 

I am delighted that Pantelis will travel to Zurich to hold a presentation about yet another domain where F# excels. I am looking forward to see many of you again, and some new members as well! Until then, enjoy the spring 

Best regards, Marc

    Very nice presentation.
    Note however that the "ref to remote data" pattern needs to be well structured to scale.
