For over 15 years, the NYC .NET Developers Group has been the definitive community for .NET Developers in the New York City Metropolitan area. Each month, we bring you top speakers, free product giveaways, and great community networking, all for free. We meet on the 2nd Thursday of each month at the NY Microsoft Offices at 11 Times Square (West 41st Street and 8th Avenue).
Our group is run by well known experts in Microsoft technologies. Our own enthusiasm for the .NET platform and our close relationship with Redmond, Microsoft NY/NJ and the third-party .NET community ensure great speakers and great information.
This meeting will be virtual since Microsoft has not reopened their NYC offices yet. Please RSVP for meeting link.
Come join Cameron Presley as he dives into how many functional programming operations actually work under the .NET hood!
6:30PM - INTRODUCTION: Housekeeping, open mic and other community announcements & request.
7:00PM - MAIN PRESENTATION: When taking your first steps into functional programming, you'll quickly run into blog posts talking about how to simplify complex loops by using the trinity of list operations: map, filter, and reduce. But what are these methods actually doing under the hood to help simplify your code?
If you're familiar with the .NET landscape, then you already have experience with an implementation of the trinity within LINQ (Language Integrated Query). However, what if I told you that by learning how LINQ implements map (Select), filter (Where), and reduce (Aggregate), you actually know how other languages implement the same constructs?
Intended for C# developers who have some experience with LINQ and an interest in learning functional programming, by the end of this session, you will have learned how to work with the Func type, generics, and extension methods!
Cameron Presley (https://twitter.com/pcameronpresley) is a Lead Software Engineer for SentryOne (https://www.sentryone.com), a speaker, a Microsoft MVP, Director of Speaker Relations for CodeStock (@CodeStock) and co-organizer of FunctionalKnox (@FunctionalKnox).
Based out of Charlotte, North Carolina, Cameron has ten years of experience working with start-ups and large enterprise both publicly and privately held to architect solutions, implement solutions, and training developers to be better today than what they were yesterday!
In his spare time, Cameron can be found hanging out with his family, playing board games, jamming on the bass guitar, and reading books.
