Everybody was F# Fighting!
Anthony Brown heads down from the big smoke to take us through the arts of F# in a Dojo. Session details - How do you take your knowledge of F# from “Hello world” to an F# web application running in the cloud? This workshop shows you how! We’ll start with building a web service using Saturn, a functional web framework which lets you write idiomatic F# web services running on top of ASP.Net Core. After that we’ll go onto build a web application running in the web browser, written in F# and compiled over to JavaScript with the Fable compiler. We’ll also then deploy it up into the cloud with Azure. This workshop will expose you to all elements of the SAFE stack and the F# development ecosystem, allowing you to build full stack cloud ready web applications entirely in F#. You’ll get to see: Web services with Saturn Deployment to the cloud with Azure F# in the browser with Fable Functional UI design with the Elmish architecture If you want to attend this workshop you’ll need a few things: A laptop running OSX, Linux or Windows An F# editor such as VS Code with Ionide, Rider or VS2017 A .Net core installation Node.JS Yarn If you’re on OSX or Linux, you’ll also need Mono installed to run some of the tooling

What we're about

We bring our members great talks from the best speakers in the UK and where possible from around the world. Predominately we look at the Microsoft development stack, but we do have platform neutral and methodology based talks too.

We guarantee one meeting a month, normally on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Everyone is welcome! Be you a student or grizzled professional, come along for a night of great content, people and pizza :)

We offer your first 2 events for free, then after that we'd like you to take out a membership to continue attending. Speak to either John or Rich to find out more about how the membership works :)

If you're wondering why you can't see the full 5 years of back sessions we've had, it's because we've recently migrated from our old home at NxtGenUG Southampton ( By all means go and see what we've covered in the previous 5 years :D
