An evening with Thomas Petricek

FsLab: Doing data science with F#

In this talk, I’ll demonstrate end-to-end data analysis using FsLab – a cross-platform set of data science libraries and tools based on F# that make it easy to perform the entire process with a single tool. Type providers turn external data sources into inherent part of your language; integration with tools like R gives you immediate access to professional packages and HTML5-based visualization tools produce beautiful results.

After a short (optional) break, we’ll try to find a hidden treasure in the Type Provider treasure hunt! The goal of the dojo is to find 7 secret words to get a secret phrase! To find each word, you need to solve a simple data access task using type providers - such as read XML document, perform JSON-based REST request or read data from the WorldBank.

Tomas is a long-time F# enthusiast, Microsoft MVP and author of a book Real-World Functional Programming ( which explains functional programming concepts using C# 3.0 and teaching F# alongside. He leads functional programming and F# courses in London, New York and worldwide. He contributed to the development of F# as a contractor at Microsoft Research in Cambridge and helped create data-manipulation library Deedle while working at BlueMountain Capital in New York. Before starting PhD at Cambridge, he studied in Prague and worked as an independent .NET consultant.

    It seems I was wrong about the passing of Buzz Aldrin. He is very much alive.
