This month we've got not one, but TWO fantastic speakers!

Steve Spencer and Simon Painter will be coming along to talk to us about Flow and Logic Apps as well as Functional C#

Sponsored by our friends at Cordius:


Easy integration with Flow and Logic Apps - Steve Spencer

Historically integrating different systems has been challenging and you have needed experts to help you build even the simplest integration. Microsoft has introduced its Azure based offerings to help take some of the complexity out of integrating to allow you to build your own personal workflows. This talk will introduce both Flow and Logic apps, show you where to use each and how you can migrate from Flow to Logic Apps.

Steve is a Professional Scrum Master, Scrum Developer Trainer and a TFS Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist.

Functional C# - Simon Painter:

So you want to get started, putting together Functional code, but you don't have time for the learning curve that comes with F# or Haskell? Or maybe you're fine with them, but the rest of the team isn't ready to follow yet. Whatever the case may be, it's perfectly possible to implement a lot of the amazing features of Functional programming in C#, without the need for any new dependencies, or even any especially complicated code.
We'll be looking at:
• What is Functional Programming?
• What are the benefits?
• Higher-Order functions - Chaining & Currying
• Functional program structure
• Coming features in C#8 - Pattern Matching

About Simon Painter

Simon has been programming in some form from the day in the early 90s when he first realised his ZX Spectrum+ could do more than just play Magicland Dizzy, and professionally for around 13 years. He is passionate about development, open source and old British TV programs. Will code for money.
