What: "Functional Programming in Finance" (F#)
Where/When: London, Mon 25th Nov 2013, 8am - 6pm
(www.FSharpInFinance.com / #FSharpInFinance)
Thought you might like to share this very relevant event with your F# User Group. It's just around the corner on Mon, Nov 25 in London. We also will have Don Syme, F#'s inventor, and many more well know faces from the F# community speaking; covering financial Big Data, Cloud computing, GPU compute acceleration, machine learning in finance, and F# in trading, risk, and compliance ... finance done the functional way!
Anyone who is a functional programmer will know who Don Syme is. And what could be more fun than spening the day with him; if you were a basketball fan, it would be like being invited to spend the day with Michael Jordan! So, come meet Don. Ask questions. Get answers.
Who should attend: If you are interested in functional programming as it applies to finance (and also insurance too), this event is for you. With a great line up of speakers you will see how F# and the functional way of programming are being used in finance, and what the benefits are. Whether you are on the trading desk, middle office, risk & compliance, in the back office, or on "mahogany row" (management!), you will see how functional programming is being used in finance, particularly F#, and have the opportunity to network with practitioners in finance who are using, or are looking to use, the functional way of programming to solve financial problems. Quicker, better and faster! Quicker to develop. Better to maintain. And often faster to run.
There's lots here too from the worlds of Scala, Haskell, Clojure and Erlang. This is a great opportunity to network with other functional programmers and to get a sense of how functional programming is being used in practice in finance.
Why you should attend: This event is at the intersection between cutting-edge technology and cutting-edge finance, and functional programming is very much on the rise in finance. This is one technology wave you will want to catch and not let pass you by. Start paddling now! See you at "F# in Finance".
Details: This event is being run in both London and New York on these dates, pick whichever location is the most convenient. And please be sure to pass on details to anyone you know who may be interested.
