32nd meetup with F# MVP Isaac Abraham – F# and the cloud


Hello dear friends of the user group

we are excited to invite you to our next meeting.
Our guest will be F# MVP Isaac Abraham, who is well-known in London for his community efforts. English will be the spoken language for this evening.

Please be invited to our next meeting:

coffee, chat and entrance at 18:00 o’clock

start of presentation at 18:30 o’clock
at IT-Forum Rhein-Neckar, Im Zollhof 1, 67061 Ludwigshafen

Talk: Isaac Abraham (90 minutes)
A practical introduction: F# and the Cloud

F# is a mature, open source, cross-platform, functional-first programming language that that is rapidly growing in popularity as a viable companion and alternative to C# and VB .NET. With its succinct and expressive syntax, jaw-droppingly powerful features and vibrant community, it’s no wonder that many of the features being proposed for the next version of C# are based on F#!

This talk will introduce the F# language and ecosystem to you, and show you just a few of the reasons why using F# can drastically reduce both bug rates and time to market. We’ll see some compelling examples of how you can immediately start using it as a part of your existing day-to-day .NET application stack, and also see some amazing demos of how F# is pushing the boundaries in data access, cloud computing, distributed compute and solving big data problems.

About the speaker:


Isaac Abraham is an F# MVP and a .NET developer since .NET 1.0 with an interest in cloud computing and distributed data problems. He nowadays lives in both the UK and Germany, and is the director of Compositional IT. He specializes in consultancy, training and development, helping customers adopt high-quality, functional-first solutions on the .NET platform.

Regulars’ table (Stammtisch)

As always, we will continue the evening at 20:30 o’clock at the Italian Restaurant Tialini. The regulars’ table gives you enough time for networking, chatting, dinning and some bear with geeks:

    It’s always a great pleasure to listen to a real expert. And for sure, Isaac can do F#. He began by providing an overview of the F# language and ecosystem, and how and where it fits in within the overall .NET picture. He explained that F# is an open source language, with an active community who are contributing not just to the eco system of tools and packages but also to the language itself. We ended with a demo of some cloud features of F#, such as working with Azure data and finally looked at MBrace, which is a distributed compute / data framework. Isaac used the framework to easily spin up clusters of machines in Azure and then distributed the presented code across the cluster to perform distributed workloads. After 2 hours the show was over and – for sure – everybody was a bit excited to try out functional programming on his own.

    For this we have the slides here:

    Many thanks to Issac for this great talk. It was a pleasure!
